The Greater London Authority (GLA) is a top-tier administrative body responsible for strategic planning, transport policy, emergency services and economic development across all 32 London boroughs. In 2017 GLA co-funded the Natural capital account study with the aim of showing the economic value of health benefits that Londoners get from the capital's public parks and green spaces. Groundwork GIS was responsible for presenting the results as a web map to highlight the enormous economic value and benefits provided by public parks and green spaces within London.
This project involved working with the GLA to present the findings of the Natural Capital report for London. This report highlights the enormous economic value and benefits provided by public parks and green spaces. It provides evidence for maintaining, or even increasing, investment in London’s public green spaces. To show these benefits we created a web map with a breakdown of the value of green spaces per borough. As part of this a custom UI was developed to show a table including the full breakdown of the value and a link to the appropriate borough in the report.
