ZANIN, Elisabete Maria; SANTOS, José Eduardo dos  e  HENKE-OLIVEIRA, Carlos. Environmental analysis and zoning for an urban park management purpose. Braz. arch. biol. technol. [online]. 2005, vol.48, n.4, pp. 647-655. ISSN 1516-8913.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-89132005000500018.

Environmental analysis and zoning were carried out for management purpose of the Longines Malinowski Municipal Park (LMMP). With an area of 24.85 ha, this urban park includes a patch of sub-tropical humid forest, completely surrounded by residential and commercial areas in the City of Erechim, Rio Grande do Sul State,Brazil. Landscape features derived from aerophotogrametric maps, based on the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS-IDRISI), resulted in several thematic maps, through which a proposal of environmental zoning was perfomed, observing the definition of five zones of use. The environmental diagnosis identified several types of activities potentially harmful to the biodiversity of the LMMP and city's environmental quality. The implementation of a management plan would be essential to maintain and preseve this urban park, aiming to ensure its participation in the urban quality of life.
