The indicator shows the citizens’ access to common public spaces in Danish urban areas. The spaces of urban areas that are open to the public are divided into three types: 1.) Paths, streets and roads, 2) Green spaces – including forests, parks and other natural resorts etc., 3) Other open spaces – including areas around educational institutions, sports centres and open-air swimming pools, town halls, public transport stations, hospitals, libraries etc., to which there is a registered road/path. Add to this, areas without any or with hardly any building stock (building sites, playing fields etc.).
Only open air spaces have been included. Major covered spaces open to the public, such as shopping centres and railway station halls/platforms are not included.
The Danish Agency for Data Supply and Efficiency made this assessment in collaboration with Statistics Denmark using the Danish cadastral map, Danish place names and GeoDanmark data from The Map Supply as well as field maps and production blocks from the Danish Agricultural Agency.
