Increasing the amount of green space in urban areas is an important process in order to avoid a deterioration and to reduce the quantity of heat islands. The implementation of horizontal and vertical greening on buildings in the built-up area can significantly rise the share of green area in a city. This master thesis deals with the research question: Is it possible to fully evaluate the project areas in advance using freely available digital data (open source), in order to determine the potential of greenable area on buildings? In addition to literature research, the potential area analysis in Neulerchenfelder Straße and in Innerfavoriten Vienne (A) was carried out via desktop, followed by an onsite evaluation. In terms of method, the potential areas were assessed by means of the rough scale estimate. Recordings of this type are to be regarded as a subjective method. The aim of thesis was to estimate the hypothecial territorium in the project areas Neulerchenfelder Straße and Innerfavoriten. The analysis demonstrated the horizontal and vertical greening potential on the buildings and defined greening variants for green roofs and facades. The result of the investigation shows a high greening potential of 68 % of the total areas (332.174 m² ) on buildings in the project area. The evaluation method developed in the master's thesis enables a quick determination of the greening potential as well as a general assessment of the individual objects. The conclusion from the analysis is that potential area assessment still lacks considerable building specific information for precise statements about the greening potential of facades and roofs.
