Smart Green Space

Smart Green Space

VEGETATION COVERAGE MONITOR - It is now possible to analyse the ratio between vegetation and built-up areas for municipalities, provinces or districts using real-time and legacy data. Use this app to review and monitor policies for green spaces in your jurisdiction.

We have measured the ratio of green (vegetation) and grey (built-up) areas in the Netherlands using Landsat imagery for the last 30 years. With the Smart Green Space dashboard, it is possible to analyse the changes in ratio between green and built-up areas, and support research into ‘urban heat islands’ and ‘water permeability studies’, making it possible to review and monitor the policies on green spaces in urban areas.
