This study aims to identify and evaluate the spatial distribution of
Cultural Ecosystem Services (CES) benefits perceived by people in both
urban and rural areas. A public participation GIS (PPGIS) approach was
applied with local people who responded to an online survey and mapped
their important places related to CES benefits in the Kokemäenjoki area.
We explore the perceived ecosystem services of the community using
different infrastructure types (green, grey, yellow and blue) based on
the Corine Land Cover (CLC) classes. We identified spatial patterns of
mapped important places using kernel dens ity estimation and related CES
benefit associations with the infrastructures using chi-square
residuals. We found that CES in urban areas are provided more often when
there is more than one type of infrastructure (e.g., grey and green;
grey and blue), but grey infrastructures are preferred in urban areas,
while blue infrastructures produce more CES benefits in rural areas.
