Greenway Exploration In The Satellite Jungle: Discovery Of Urban And Rural Green Network With Satellite Image Analysis In Hungary, Sándor Jombach, Huawei Li, Guifang Wang, István Valánszki, Krisztina F. Kovács

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Over the last few decades of growing data production in the field of remote sensing and GIS, we have experienced a rapid development of methods and tools in green network analysis. A series of journal articles, methodological and technical guidelines describe how to map green system based on aerial photography and satellite imagery. Many studies stress that green networks have a climatic conditioning role and outstanding ecological significance in landscapes. Environmental agreements and sustainability aspects emphasize the need for mapping and managing green infrastructure in urban and rural landscapes. The usual question is: What are the elements of green infrastructure ...


Developing Greenways Under A Top-Down Institutional Structure: A Case Study In The Pearl River Delta, China, Zheng Liu, Yanliu Lin, Nanan Zhao Jan 2016

Developing Greenways Under A Top-Down Institutional Structure: A Case Study In The Pearl River Delta, China, Zheng Liu, Yanliu Lin, Nanan Zhao

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Greenways are linear open spaces and networks of lands that are planned, designed and managed for ecological, scenic, recreational and cultural purposes (Little, 1990; Ahern, 1995; Fabos, 1995; Erickson, 2004; Jongman & Pungetti, 2004). Greenways are commonly structured by natural or humanmade features such as rivers, ridgelines, railroads, canals or roads (Erickson, 2004). In the international greenway movement, greenways no longer had only a beautification and recreational function, but expanded to multiple objectives, such as habitat protection, flood hazard reduction, water quality improvement, historical preservation, education and interpretation (Searns, 1995; Tan, 2006). Moreover, the concept of greenways shows high compatibility with diverse forms, which is “a route which is good from an environmental point of view” (Turner, 1998).

In China, the modern greenway movement started in 2010, when Guangdong Provincial Government initiated a three-year political campaign to construct the Pearl River Delta (PRD) Greenway Network. In 2014, the PRD greenways had a total length of 8,909 kilometers, connecting ...


Green Structure Under Pressure – About Knowledge In Planning Processes. Case Study From Oslo, Kine Halvorsen Thorén, Inger-Lise Saglie Jan 2013

Green Structure Under Pressure – About Knowledge In Planning Processes. Case Study From Oslo, Kine Halvorsen Thorén, Inger-Lise Saglie

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Compact city development has obtained a hegemonic status as a model for sustainable urban development in the Norwegian context as well as internationally. However, cities are also dependent on the natural environment to function properly, according to the report ” Norway´s Environmental Targets” (Norwegian Ministry of the Environment, 2012). A sound principle of sustainable urban developments is consequently to take care of continuous green structure with green corridors that link urban districts and green spaces with surrounding countryside. Such areas are important for the health and life quality for the urban population, but the authorities also underline the areas’ important ...


Opportunities For Greenways Through Development Of Ecological And Green Corridor Landscape Planning In Hungary, Attila Csemez, Judit Bárcziné Kapovits Jan 2013

Opportunities For Greenways Through Development Of Ecological And Green Corridor Landscape Planning In Hungary, Attila Csemez, Judit Bárcziné Kapovits

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

In the specialist literature on landscape design, greenways are multi-functional routes which optimally have both recreational and ecological functions. The recreational function of greenways is primarily use by pedestrians, cyclists and horse-riders. The ecological role of greenways means that optimally they are part of a given landscape’s ecological system. In the course of our research – taking into account the natural, social and economic conditions, as well as landscape and design precedents – we are seeking answers to questions within the following categories: (1) justifications for the creation of greenways in Hungary; (2) the geographical areas in which greenways may be ...

Opportunities For Greenways Development In The South Wine Region Of Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, Yolanda Torres, Rosa Contreras, Jesús Serrano

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Ensenada has a winemaking tradition deeply rooted, as it is considered as the main wineproducing region in Mexico. The wine industry in Ensenada is developed in two regions: the northern region and the southern region. In recent years the tourism sector of Ensenada has seen a remarkable increase, particularly in the case of wine tourism in the north region. The Regional Development Programme for the Wine Region was created in 2006, to reach an optimal balance between economic and social activities and the sustainable development of the region; however, this programme only covers the north wine region. Recently, the interest ...


A New Approach - Dealing With The Challenges Of Rapid Urbanization In Hainan, China, Yanhong Tang, Yuezhong Chen Jan 2013

A New Approach - Dealing With The Challenges Of Rapid Urbanization In Hainan, China, Yanhong Tang, Yuezhong Chen

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

During the rushed process to urbanize, land development practices can be harsh on local people as well as the natural and cultural character of the land. With strong governmental power in China, land acquisition by government and developers is usually much easier than in the US. Local residents may be relocated without asking for their input, making way for expensive housing and large hotels; the land they depended on to earn their living may be replaced by seemingly endless identical luxury vacation villas, shopping complexes, and theme parks. Residents face the threat of losing the traditional income source and, later ...

Retrofitting Cities: A Case Study In Baltimore - Exploring New Trends In Urban Greenways, Jim Brown

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Landscape Architecture is presented with a unique design challenge in the contemporary city as ideas of green infrastructure and sustainability are gaining significance, and the emerging role of greenways’ importance in shaping future urban form. There is significant discussion of the role of urban greenways along natural corridors providing recreation and environmental services in cities (Gobster &Westphal et al., 2004) as well as the role of greenways in creating synergy on differing scales addressing sustainability and connectivity in urban areas (Sharma, 2010). Additionally there has been an emerging discussion of how Detroit and other “blighted” or “legacy” rust-belt cities are ...


Greenway Development Possibilities In Hungray; Flood Protection Banks And Abandoned Railway Lines In Greenway Development, Attila Csemez Jan 2010

Greenway Development Possibilities In Hungray; Flood Protection Banks And Abandoned Railway Lines In Greenway Development, Attila Csemez

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Greenways, as their name suggests, are linear elements. The essence of a greenway is that it connects and separates. A greenway system means a continuous, unbroken connection of green spaces. In Hungary the greenway system could become complete if existing and proposed greenways could be connected at the following locations:

⎯ Along the Danube and Tisza flood prevention banks

⎯ Along main routes

⎯ On both sides of the rivers and smaller streams

⎯ On the edges of settlements

A greenway system would provide ecological harmony and a determining landscape structure for the Carpathian basin, as well as strengthen its visual and landscape aesthetic ...

Landscape Planning Of Fringe City Zones - The Case Studies Of Belgrade And Vrnjačka Spa, Tijana Crnčević Phd, Jelena Živanović Miljković Msc

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The fringe city zones represent spaces which make the connection between city and nature, where urban areas cross into rural, or to the natural areas. The places where in the last decades, because of the rapid development, these zones shows the diverse of the land use and with lot of surfaces subjected to the constant changes (Friedberger, 2000) leading into destruction of the landscape. From the administrative point of view, the fringe zone starts outside the border of the Master plan (MP). The contemporary practice of urban planning confer the need to harmonize the interest of the city and the ...
