Abstract: This work aims at contributing in measuring and evaluating urban green areas in European cities. The main objective of the work was to compare the most common and used dataset on cities available in Europe, Urban Atlas, with the new dataset produced by the JRC, the Green European Settlement Map 2016. The method consists of developing and applying an automatic computation of green urban areas in the 300 cities in which Urban Atlas dataset is available for the year 2006. This report will illustrate the rationale of the work and results. In particular, it will show that the Green European Settlement Map 2016 detects more green areas than Urban Atlas.
