Abstract

The aim of the article is the mapping and assessment of ES potential in the scale of the city and identifi cation of site-specifi c elements that support or reduce the ES potential at the site scale.  For this purpose, a multi-criteria spatial analysis, mapping and fi eld vision were conducted. The results showed urban areas with the lowest ES potential that are also characterized by the highest population density. At the site scale, land cover and land-use types with other anthropogenic elements that affect  the ES potential and flow were identifi ed. The results can be used to support the transformation process of the city toward nature-based solutions.
