Prague will focus on better green management. This will increase resilience to climate change
Dozens of administrators in the capital take care of the greenery. They collect data into their own databases, which cannot communicate with each other. Therefore, the new ones will transfer the most important information to a unified system, which will be managed by the Institute of Planning and Development of the Capital City of Prague. m of Prague. The new unified administration should thus contribute to the successful care of the environment in the city.
The City of Prague, the Technical Administration of Communications and the Institute of Planning and Development have agreed to create a unified system of shared data on greenery. The Forests of the Capital City of Prague will also be involved in the project. Data on trees, green areas or watercourses will be collected. For example, trees are not just about location and species, but also about their basic parameters.
“The principle of data-driven city management is constantly expanding into new areas, such as blue-green infrastructure. I believe that a system of shared data on greenery will help make the care of the environment in our city more efficient. At the same time, I welcome the fact that information on greenery will be published in the form of open data, which can further serve as a basis for additional application, to support community greenery projects, “Says the mayor of the capital city of Prague Zdeněk Hřib.
“The proposed solution through a uniform format and content standard is an efficient, modern and technically undemanding solution. The newly created system will enable better management across organizations and cities, maintenance and planning of green infrastructure development. “ says the first deputy mayor Petr Hlaváček.
The unified system will share the data needed to solve city-wide problems.
“In order to be able to take good care of greenery, we must first know what condition it is in. That is why TSK now owns information systems on the condition of trees. Thanks to this, we can help those green managers who do not have the appropriate tool for collecting data on trees and their condition immediately and at no additional cost. In any case, for administrators who use their own system today, unification will not be a burden thanks to a clever technical solution, where IPR can “extract” the necessary data from various software, “ adds Adam Scheinherr, II. Mayor’s Square.
“Prague is one of the greenest cities in the world. I believe that sharing data on the state of greenery will help individual organizations and city districts to maintain and maintain greenery in Prague even more, ” says the deputy for the environment Petr Hlubuček.
The project was approved by the City Council. The commissioning of the first basic application is scheduled for February next year. Gradually, city districts and organizations will be added, which will be obliged to update the data regularly.
“The data will be made available through an information system, which already stores a lot of data about the city’s infrastructure. We plan to create web map applications within our geoportal and other platforms, the publication of open data on greenery or the connection of data with a 3D model of Prague, “ explains the director of IPR Ondřej Boháč.
