Service Description: Green urban areas such as parks, public and private gardens, and even trees lining streets can facilitate climate change adaptation and mitigation, improve health and quality of life, and may favour biodiversity conservation.\n\nVegetated areas in cities can perform a cooling effect thanks to evapotranspiration and shadowing, which may improve thermal comfort of urban dwellers, and increase their resilience to heat waves events. Moreover, green urban areas are unsealed, allowing the infiltration of storm water and decreasing of rainwater runoff.\n\nThe presence of urban green elements favours pollution control as vegetation provides cleaner air by removing pollutants like nitrogen dioxide and microscopic particulate matter.\n\nUrban green spaces have an important value beyond their environmental benefits and aesthetical assets; exposure to greenspaces can restore physical and mental health of city dwellers by enhancing psychological health, and reducing blood pressure and stress levels.\n\nFor all these, the share of green urban areas is defined as the proportion of all vegetated patches within the city boundaries in relation to the total 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.
