Product Description

A webinar focused on the use of EO and GIS data for management and analysis of urban green structures.

The urban green infrastructure provides a number of important ecosystem services to city habitants. The webinar consists of a theoretical background on green infrastructure and ecosystem services, but also real-world cases exemplified by an extensive urban development planned north of Stockholm metropolitan area.

Participants will learn more about the use of EO and GIS tools, urban green infrastructure and ecosystem services.

The webinar is mainly non-technical and targets planners on different levels in cities or municipalities but also Climate adaption coordinators, GIS technicians, researchers and ecologists.
