Public green areas contribute to a city’s image and the strengthening of social bonds. The quality of public greenery is determined by spatial planning policies, the availability of funding and management solutions. The presence of well-kept greenery affects real estate prices and local living standards. Members of the local community can provide urban planners with valuable information by identifying sites that require tree planting, hazardous plants that should be removed for the protection of public safety, by reporting illegal logging practices, incidents that compromise the safety of public green areas, by identifying local demand for new green spaces and proposing ways in which local residents can participate directly and indirectly in greenery campaigns. The attendance rates and the most popular activities in public green areas should be surveyed. The comments, ratings and ideas provided by members of the local community can be very helpful in the process of developing city maps. The above information can also facilitate decision-making and management during the development of functional geographic information systems covering environmentally valuable land. This article describes selected GIS tools that support the development of urban greenery and assist planners in the process of adapting public green spaces to local needs.

Keywords: geographic information systems, green areas, technical infrastructure, public consultation, the management of the countryside
