Abstract. This thesis concerns the development of a website where we collect urban forest data for Attiki, as well as analyze and project them to an interactive map. The lack of urban forest maps as well as the lack of civil knowledge about environmental benefits because of trees, was the reason behind the creation of this website. Data collection and data entry is taking place through crowdsourcing. Each tree is projected to the map along with relative data, as well as its environmental benefits. The environmental benefits are also calculated for each municipality and for Attiki.
