・Greenery master plan: Master plan that a municipality sets out the image, aims and measures for conservation of green space and promotion of green area. The master plan is based on the opinions of residents and  it is published as the Article 4 of the Urban Green Space Law.

Background: ・In recent years, global warming and the heat island phenomenon are hot issues. There are various renewable energy and energy saving means to achieve the low carbon society. Land management is one of them. Hiroshima greenery master plan published in 2001 is under review now (2011).

Precedence research:

1. 52.6% of the urban green space are parks in urban green space delta zone in Hiroshima delta(Moriguchi2000).
2. Te
mperatures are lower near green space and riverside in Hiroshima(Kiyota2007).

Objective: Analyze from both park vegetation survey and GIS data in Hiroshima city. Estimate the future by comparing the new data and past data (Moriguchi 2000, Nakagoshi 2006).

Study site:
・Hiroshima prefecture Hiroshima city. Area is designated as urban green space delta zone by greenery master plans in Hiroshima city.

・Vegetation survey at the same parks(197points) in reference to paper (Nakagoshi 2006).
・Investigate tree species and diameter at breast height(DBH), more than 1.3m height.
・Analysis of heat island by using GIS remote sensing by the river on the delta area.
