Providing adequate green spaces for nature-based recreation is among the main goals of urban planning, but commonly-used indicators offer a partial view on the issue. EnRoute scientists Chiara Cortinovis, Grazia Zulian and Davide Geneletti present an application of the ESTIMAP-recreation model to the city of Trento (Italy). This model maps the recreation opportunities for urban dwellers. The paper demonstrates how such data can be used for urban planning.
