Description topics

Green areas
The entrances to the green areas are established at the intersections between the roads and paths of the Top10NL (topographic map, both the line file and the road section file) in the green area and the outer boundary of the green area. For green areas without paths or roads (usually the smaller green areas and public gardens), the focus of the greenery has been taken.

In 2008 and before, only the line file of the topographic map was used and green areas without paths or roads are not included. This mainly results in a trend breach in open natural terrain.
Public green
Terrain used as a park or park, for daytime recreation, nature or as a forest. The site can be privately or publicly accessible. The site is at least one hectare in size.
Distance to open natural terrain
Terrain used as open nature, such as heathland, dunes, sand drifts, beaches, reeds and rushes, salt marshes, dried up grounds and blue grassland.
Distance to open nat. terrain total
The average distance of all inhabitants in an area to the nearest open natural area, calculated by road.
Distance to open dry natural terrain
The average distance of all inhabitants in an area to the nearest open natural area, calculated by road.
Distance to open wet natural terrain
Terrain with a wet surface in use as nature, such as wet heath, reed and rushes, salt marshes, dry land without vegetation and blue grassland.

The average distance of all inhabitants in an area to the nearest wet open natural area, calculated by road.
