Marguerite Nyhan, the principle investigator in this “Biophilic Cities” research initiative, and Anna O’Regan PhD researcher, both of MaREI, have harnessed 750,000 Google Street View images and AI to quantify urban greenspace and its impact on human health in unprecedented scale in 3 Irish cities.
Researchers mapped urban greenspace using 750,000 Google Street View images and computer vision methods to cover the expanse of three major cities in Ireland – Dublin City, Cork City and Galway City. The findings will have major implications for research and the sustainable, healthy and equitable design of future cities.View
