The reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transporta-
tion is essential for achieving politically agreed upon emissions re-
duction targets that aim to combat global climate change. So-called
eco-routing and eco-driving are able to substantially reduce GHG
emissions caused by vehicular transportation. To enable these, it is
necessary to be able to reliably quantify the emissions of vehicles
as they travel in a spatial network. Thus, a number of models have
been proposed that aim to quantify the emissions of a vehicle based
on GPS data from the vehicle and a 3D model of the spatial network
the vehicle travels in. We develop an evaluation framework, called
EcoMark, for such environmental impact models. In addition, we
survey all eleven state-of-the-art impact models known to us. To
gain insight into the capabilities of the models and to understand
the effectiveness of the EcoMark, we apply the framework to all
models.
