One year of "meinGrün" WebApp - final survey and presentation of results

In June 2020, the meinGrün project launched the web app of the same name. Now, users in Dresden and Heidelberg are asked to take part in a final survey and thus provide information for possible future development. On 28 June, the project team will also present the results of its research and the meinGrün Web Portal at the Dresden Land Use Symposium (Dresdner Flächennutzungssymposium/DFNS).

Since 19 June 2020, interested people can use the meinGrün app in the pilot cities of Heidelberg and Dresden. With the mobile application, known and unknown green spaces in the two cities and the way to them can be discovered. The app helps its users to quickly and easily find the green space that best suits their needs. Interest in the mobile application is already high. So far, the app has been used 3,500 times. Users are now being asked one last time to evaluate the app, its functionalities and search results. They can take part in the survey (in German only) until 31 June.

The meinGrün project team is currently developing a new web portal. It is intended to serve as a showcase for employees of the city administrations in Dresden and Heidelberg, but also for other interested people. The web portal visualises the data generated within the project meinGrün, presents its practical use using application scenarios as examples and makes the information available for download.
On 28 June 2021, the project team also invites experts to the meinGrün final workshop. The workshop is part of the Dresden Land Use Symposium (Dresdner Flächennutzungssymposium/DFNS), a series of events organised by the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER). Here the team will present relevant project results, the final version of the WebApp as well as the meinGrün Web Portal. The event will take place online, participation is free of charge.

Background

The meinGrün project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) as part of the mFUND research initiative (FKZ: 19F2073A). The project consortium includes the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (project management) in Dresden, the German Remote Sensing Data Centre (DFD) of the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), the Institute of Cartography of the Technische Universität Dresden, the Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology of the University of Heidelberg, the Institute for Software Development and IT Consulting (ISB AG) in Karlsruhe as well as urbanista in Hamburg and Terra Concordia in Berlin. In developing the meinGrün web app, the project team also cooperated closely with the administrations of the two pilot cities Dresden and Heidelberg. They not only provided advice, but also made municipal (green space) data available for the project.

The meinGrün web app developed as part of the project combines various data, including open geodata and the latest remote sensing data from the European Copernicus space programme, as well as user-generated data. The app was initially developed for the pilot cities of Dresden and Heidelberg. However, it can also be transferred to other cities.
