How green is your neighbourhood?
Do you know how your health benefits from urban vegetation?
Do you know how parks, gardens and street trees contribute to the urban green of your city?
Many studies have demonstrated that green spaces provide numerous benefits to the health and wellbeing
of city inhabitants. With a combination of benefits such as capturing CO2, providing shade (lowering energy expenditure) as well as their intangible social value, trees, and other green infrastructure are becoming a priority for city authorities and citizens. Our Greendex rating provides this information for customers to take green infrastructure into account, just as they consider the orientation of a house or its energy efficiency rating, among other factors.
Early adopters: real state market
The Greendex service integrated in real estate portals allows users to select neighborhoods and homes according to their green index.
Integration in AMAT portal (Real State agency Barcelona)
AMAT offers its customers more advanced information than other real estate portals thanks to the implementation of Greendex service.
AMAT portal users have a green index indicator with values of 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 according to the Greendex tool. They also have a location map, which thanks to the GreenMap API, the vegetation of the area is highlighted. These two tools provide users with more demanding information to their search credentials.

Examples of solutions
The Green Index translates the vegetation observed from satellite data to an easily interpretable value (Gx), quantifying the vegetation present around your home. The higher the green intensity of the leaf, the healthier surrounding!
Tree health and inventory update
Based on satellite images analysis and in situ information it is possible to map with high accuracy health and distribution of plants in urban areas, and their diversity, for urban green management in order to maximize the benefits that trees and green areas provides.
The Green Map shows how the vegetation is distributed in your city, and which is the quality of it (vegetation health). You can move across the different areas and look for the greenest place to be!
How do we do it ?
Earth Observation & Ancillary data
Satellite data provides a large-scale view of an area. We use high-resolution optical Earth Observation data from different satellites, depending on resolution and frequency needed. The Earth Observation data is combined with other relevant data to help refine and reconstruct the green landscape.
Cloud Data Service
The processing chain includes a primary treatment to obtain the normalised difference vegetation information and a post treatment to delimit the areas of study. The service is deployed and run within a scalable cloud system that allows for processing and dissemination of data covering entire cities and its environs.
Our API provides the Green Maps and allows the instant generation of the Green Index. The provision of information through API allows for the flexible design of innovative online services as the user demands.
