Ecological mapping of green space

In Stuttgart, ecological mapping using GIS technology has been applied to different types of urban green space. The mapping exercise has identified areas of natural and artificial vegetation and has indicated the vulnerability of these areas to human pressure. On the basis of this information, public surveys have been used to evaluate the importance of natural areas within the cities parks.
