Service Description: Green Infrastructure at the fringes of cities performs ecosystem services in a similar way as for the inner urban areas, though direct benefits from urban-rural interactions are highlighted. Green spaces in the peri-urban area may improve air quality and mitigate climate change. A well connected network of green elements forming ventilation channels facilitates the circulation of fresher and cleaner air from the periphery into the city. The vegetated ventilation network may reduce traffic emissions, mitigate noise, and provide a cooling effect.\n\nOpen areas at the urban fringe may favour species richness. These natural and semi-natural areas generally host a diversity of landscapes, as they are dynamic locations surrounded by a variety of land uses. Moreover, green infrastructure elements may be used to network together urban areas with their neighbouring countryside. An improved connectivity may support the functioning of ecosystems, both urban and rural, mitigating the negative impacts of the built environment.\n\nMoreover, the urban-rural interface forms a vital recreational and cultural pool for urban society that is equally connected to nature and to the countryside.\nThe effective green infrastructure indicator is based on the potential distribution of green infrastructure in the peri-urban area, that is, the probability to find a green infrastructure element in the territory or in the closed neighbouring area.\n\n\n\nThis service was specifically created for UrbanGI Story Map, so its layer structure and attributes are tailored to the map’s needs.
