STV is reporting that Edinburgh and Glasgow have the most green spaces in the UK’s ten most populous cities, according to a new series of satellite maps.
The Scottish capital was followed by Glasgow and Bristol in the study. At 49.2%, almost half of the Scottish capital boasts parks and green land, followed by the country’s largest city at 32%. The cities took the top two spots on a new table drawn up by mapping experts Esri UK.
The team analysed satellite images taken in early 2016 to pinpoint green space and vegetation in each city, highlighting it bright green so it could be easily spotted on the map.
