GIS, aerial and satellite photos will be used together with field work sessions to identify and categorize the green areas of Porto. Site analysis will follow based on gathered data of main ecological character, human use and landscape aesthetics.
By having all the areas classified and described it will be possible to lay out a specific plan on how to approach each of these sites, and select which parameters shall be analyzed and which tools shall be used for each of them.
At this stage, a server allows the creation of a centralized source of information for the project. A database-oriented web interface will be available allowing users to add information from any internet connected place. At a later stage, the server will also be capable of transposing the analytical data into a visual geographic data; it will also allow real-time updating.
