Many environmental indicator sets have emerged over time, each serving their own purpose and having their own tailor-made indicators. Some indicators share the same name, but depict something very different. Other indicators are essentially the same, but have totally different names. Some indicator sets are reused within other sets. Other indicators are more or less modified, altered or added to other indicator sets, etc. Some indicators also need to be fit for purpose (i.e. suitable to the function they are meant to fulfil).
