Abstract

The management, maintenance and improvement of public spaces requires multi-criteria assessment tools, sensitive to socio-environmental conditions which are often neglected in the decision-making process of Public Administrations. The research proposes a multi-scale assessment system consisting of eight indicators. The indicators contribute, through the visualization on a GIS basis and the tabular computation to define a progressive assessment path that goes from the city scale to the analysis of a selected green space and its equipment. This experimental method takes into account the life cycle of the endowments of public spaces, the normative constraints, the morphological features of public spaces and the qualitative/quantitative social needs of green urban spaces.
