Blue-Green Factor Calculator app - now available for download on Android

The Blue-Green Factor (BGF) can now be implemented in an Android compatible app, downloadable from Playstore under “BGF calculator”. BGF Calculator lets you calculate the blue-green factor for a property using a method developed for Future Cities – Fremtidens Byer. The blue green factor is a measure of the quality of a property in terms of its green structures and surface water management.

Read about the practical application of BGF Calculator in the case study 'Valuation of urban ecosystem services in Oslo'. The case study discusses conducting an integrated assessment and valuation of urban ecosystem services, which supports urban management and decision-making in Oslo. It scrutinises the potential and limitations of the concepts of ecosystem services and natural capital in an urban and Norwegian context.
