The green MKP Indicator calculates per different type of area a grade based on the amount of green in this area. The allocation of the area determines the calculation of the grade. Each type of area has different parameters for the amount and value of green. For example, an area with mostly industrial buildings is allowed to have less green than a residential area.

This indicator is for example useful for projects in where:

  • (one of the) goals is to work on reaching a certain green target
  • different spatial plans are compared using the 3D Visualization
  • the project area should become climate adaptive

The green MKP Indicator belongs to the set of MKP indicators. MKP stands for Environmental Quality Models (MileuKwaliteitsProfielen) and consist of up to 20 indicators to assess the built environment. The MKP and therefore the indicators are created by the Province of Utrecht. Read more about the MKP indicators and the theory behind it on this page.

This Excel indicator can be downloaded from the Public GeoShare. Read on to find out more about the indicator's calculation method and how to set it up in your project.

  • The score per area


The indicator calculates the amount of m2 green per area. This is backchecked against the allocation plan per area to calculate the score per area.The following formula is used:
The calculation MKP Green indicator. The calculation of score MKP Green indicator.


The score is represented in a progress bar, with a scale from 0 to 100%. Determine if you want to calculate the absolute or relative score. In general, the more green is present in an area, the higher the score is.
