We are investigating city dwellers’ perceptions of cultural ecosystem services and disservices as well as their recreational uses in urban forests. Therefore, we elicited spatial data of 3354 city inhabitants in Germany’s Southwest. We derived biophysical characteristics, landform and land cover data from various maps–including OpenStreetMap, inventory maps, high resolution LiDAR satellite imagery, and forest function maps of the federal states’ forestry administration. Aim of our study is to examine the linkages between cultural ecosystem services (CES) hotspots (demand) and physical landscape features (supply) to help urban forest managers identify natural resource management synergies and conflicts.
