What is the definition of a building footprint?
One definition A building footprint is the outline of the total area of a lot or site that is surrounded by the exterior walls of a building or portion of a building, exclusive of courtyards.$ In the absence of surrounding exterior walls, the building footprint shall be the area under the horizontal projection of the roof.

An ecological or carbon footprint measures howmuch of the planet's resources you use, and converts this to theamount of land needed to provide the resources and assimilate yo…urwaste. It is measured in global hectares (a hectare is about thesize of a soccer field). It includes: . The amount of building materials you use in your home andworkplace . The amount of water you use in your home, workplace andgarden . The fossil fuels (oil, coal, wood and natural gas) needed: . to provide the power to run your home and workplace . to bring your food from all over the world . to power your vehicles and transport . to carry away and dispose of your waste. A carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide that one personcreates and uses with all the things he or she does. It is how much damage on the environment that something has. Thecarbon footprint for a bottle of water would add up the negativeenvironmental impact of manufacturing plastic bottles and truckemissions for delivering the water. Your house would have a carbonfootprint. There are websites that help you determine carbon footprints A person's carbon footprint is defined by looking at how much ofwhat they do in their lives contributes even a small amount toglobal warming. Such things include recycling, driving where it ispossible to walk and not switching off house lights. We can reduceour carbon footprint by being more ecologically friendly. Carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have onthe environment, and in particular climate change. It relates tothe amount of greenhouse gases produced in our day-to-day livesthrough burning fossil fuels for electricity, heating andtransportation, food etc.
Same as genetic footprinting, only at a high throughput, systems level way. Typically you use a transposon library to insert mutations to cells that inactivate genes (you assu…me one transposon/inactivation per cell). Then you trascription profile (dna microarray, rna-seq) after selection (whatever you want to select for, growth, resistance etc) and try to map the mutations/genes inactivations to the fitness changes in the cells. For example if you select for growth in a particular environment and the deletion of a gene confers this, then during selection that mutant will be over-represented, so when you run a microarray, you will see no expression of the deleted gene in reference with the wild type strain.
not a complete answer but according to http://www.pacinst.org/topics/integrity_of_science/case_studies/hummer_vs_prius.pdf. The British auto industry trade group estimated in… their 2006 sustainability report that lifecycle CO2 emissions - a strong proxy for energy - are allocated 10% to manufacturing; 85% to use; and 5% to disposal.

You go to places to try and find out some clues (I have not done this yet, so I'm sorry if this info. is wrong. If you have a better way edit this and I'll come back to try y…our ideas. Please fine out!).
Carbon Footprint - A measure of the amount of carbon dioxide emitted through fossil fuel combustion. A carbon footprint is often expressed as tons of carbon emitted on an ann…ual basis. See Environmental Footprint.
it is a built of land footprint when people walk on it and use it and stuff also has to do with architecture
footprint is the ground area that its transponders offer coverage, and determines the satellite dish diameter required to receive each transponder's signal. There is usually …a different map for eachtransponder as each may be aimed to cover different areas of the ground.
When carbon emissions are released into the atmosphere themolecules essentially get trapped in the gases of the atmosphereand can stay for long periods of time and get swept a…round theworld also. In this manner they build up and create a "hole" in theozone where =by the natural protection of the atmosphere is eatenaway by the chemical carbon monoxide.
No. The building footprint is the area it occupies within a lot or space. That building can be multiple stories ether above or underground. The space within the building foo…tprint/ multiple stories can be considered the square footage.
proteins are body-building food.foods that contain proteins help us to grow,build up our bones and muscles and also to grow strong and healthy.
The formation of mountains, the building of mountains.
A term used indiscriminately, but generally referring to proteins.
It did rather exceed it's footprint, but the reasons it didn't "fall over" are as follows; 1. The structural failure was towards the top, so the bottom was fine and thus all s…tayed upright until the vertical shock loads of the falling floors above caused failure, which was progressive and local. 2. The walls were 'tied in' by the floors, so did not individually 'fall out', except for the small components after failure. There would certainly also have been a central 'core', with stairs, lift shafts etc, which would have failed last, so each floor would be likely to have 'slid' down around the core on impact of the floors above, before the core itself failed. 2.
