Convenience Analysis of Citizen Using Garden Green Space Basing on Road Network’s Accessibility
Abstract: Green space accessibility can be used to measure the potential of green space to provide services to residents. Taking urban community as the basic unit, using GIS software and combining with the distribution of road network and population, convenience of every community to the nearest garden green space is analyzed with the aspect of time. Results show that 69% community can reach the nearest park green space within 5 minutes no matter which kind of transportation is used and the convenience of most communities are well. However, some community residents’ convenience of arriving at the nearest park green space is bad (more than 10 minutes). These communities of which population accounted for 3.6% are Jinxing Community and Lingzhi Community of Caiyuan Street Office and Yingchun Community and Nanhu Community of Daimiao Street Office.
