Your graphic above indicates WELL recertification is every 2 years, but I believe it's every 3 based on the info I was reviewing a few days ago. Is this an error here, or has recertification been changed?

Thank you for catching that, Emily. The recertification requirement in WELL is indeed after three years. We'll look into updating the graphic to fix that.

Glad to see someone has taken on a comparison of these systems, and hope this continues to be updated and expanded.   I definitely think some explanatory narrative would be helpful. How, for instance, did you define the different categories, "Covered", etc.?  These seem a little vague, so describing the thinking behind them and some examples of how they were applied to a few issues/systems would be very useful.  I would consider adding hovertext that defines each of the categories, some are obvious but others not so much.  For instance, what is meant by "Services and Employment Access"?  I can guess, but would rather not.

Also, why is there no cost info included for WELL, LEED, LBC?  There are some specific numbers included in the hovertext for Fitwel, but not the others.  And they are known costs.  

Lastly, looks like a little typo in the Resilient Community category. The hovertext for Fitwel is a note about costs not being available, which doesn't seem relevant to that category, and the costs are listed in the Mechanics section.  

Full disclosure: My spouse is the ED of the org that administers Fitwel.
