ECONOMIC VALUE OF LINEAR LANDSCAPEs

The research on the economic value of linear landscapes is a study of the indirect effect of public, green infrastructure projects on adjacent development. Specifically through the assessment of secondary data, this research is applied to the linear landscape examples of the Katy Trail and Santa Fe Trail in Dallas, Texas. This research has future applications towards the study of landscape performance and enhanced communication of economic value of landscape architecture in relationship to adjacent developments.
