NatureScore™ and TreePlotter™

MEASURE THE IMPACTS OF NATURE ON PUBLIC HEALTH

What is a NatureScore™?

Plan cities with human health in mind

 

There is a mountain of research connecting nature exposure with positive human health outcomes. Unfortunately, many cities do not provide sufficient, high-quality access to nature. NatureScore provides an elegant way for cities to visualize, quantify, and act on increasing nature exposure to improve public health.

NatureScore measures the predictive health impacts created by the quantity and quality of nature in a given area. NatureScore and TreePlotter work hand in hand to deliver information in a user-friendly actionable format.

One Actionable Number

NatureScore translates the complex health impacts of nature exposure into actionable insights.

Compelling Evidence

NatureScore provides a fresh, quantitative source of evidence for advocating for greater investment in urban forests, parks, and open spaces.

Compare Then Repair

Compare different areas within your community to prioritize and improve the areas most in need of health-supporting nature.

The NatureScore map identifies not just where nature exists, but where quality nature that improves health outcomes exists

How NatureScore™ Works

Technology to promote urban nature exposure

 

We start by identifying where nature exists with NatureScore and TreePlotter

Identify

We start by identifying where nature exists.

For NatureScore this involves an aggregation of 30 different data sources to locate both green space (urban parks, public open spaces, street trees, landscaped plant life) and blue space (rivers, lakes, canals, waterfalls, and even some human-made water features).

These data sources include computer vision processes for analyzing aerial and satellite imagery, pollution indices, human modifications, and vegetation databases.

Rank

The geolocated nature elements are then weighted by a machine learning process to develop a 0 – 100 score representing the highest associated health impacts of nature around a location. A high NatureScore has a strong positive association with increased longevity, and reductions in negative outcomes like cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

The NatureScore map identifies not just where nature exists, but where quality nature that improves health outcomes exists (and more importantly, where it is deficient).

This data can then be visualized at various scales within a community, from citywide to census block.

Act

NatureScore and TreePlotter are then used to visualize the data at multiple scales in the community, from citywide to census block.

NatureScore is currently available for purchase for any location in the United States, and expansions for all of North America and Europe are underway.

As the underlying data sources are updated, so is NatureScore, that way the scores always represent the most topical information available.

NatureQuant™ and PlanIT Geo™ Exclusive Partnership

Two leading companies providing technology to increase nature access teaming up

 

Our vision at PlanIT Geo is to be the central hub of urban forestry solutions, especially when it comes to innovative technology. With that in mind, a partnership with NatureQuant was an important next step to offer clients a new perspective on how to manage their greenspace specifically for public health impacts. PlanIT Geo is also incorporating NatureScore Priority Index and NatureScore in TreePlotter software products as well as reports, plans, and consulting services for customers.

Both companies share a commitment to providing policymakers, urban planners, businesses, and nonprofits with innovative data to create, maintain, and improve access to nature. This partnership furthers that goal by expanding the data insights PlanIT Geo can offer clients and broadening NatureQuant’s brand awareness and market reach.
