The GeoInformation Group, publishers of Cities Revealed aerial photography recently created a ‘Cities Revealed Land Use map of Glasgow’, using national land use mapping standards, in order for Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) to review the links between greenspace and quality of life. Commissioned by Scottish Natural Heritage, Forestry Commission Scotland and the Glasgow and Clyde Valley (GCV) Structure Plan Team, the Cities Revealed Land Use map is being used in conjunction with OS MasterMap and aerial photography to examine a range of social, economic and environmental benefits associated with greenspace. It is hoped that improved analysis of the spatial relationship between people and greenspace will help to formulate more effective greenspace policies and achieve better provision of quality greenspace through land-use planning and improved greenspace management in urban areas. The GeoInformation Group is a privately owned geospatial imagery company based in Cambridge, UK, with offices in South Africa and partners in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Ireland and Japan.
