What is a greenroof potential map good for?

Climate change causes undeniable issues in dense areas already. On one hand rising temperatures result in a heat island effect while on the other hand more frequent heavy rainfall events lead to flooding. In urban areas increasing air pollution and fine dust pollution become more and more of an issue, recommended limits are more often exceeded. Roof greening can help to solve these problems, but the level of awareness of its benefits is still very low. A Greenroof Potential Map is an ideal instrument to make this subject more popular.

Just like Solar Potential Maps, Greenroof Potential Maps cause a knock-on effect and lead to an expansion of roof greening.
