Outdoor Recreation Valuation Tool (ORVal)
Developed by the Land, Environment, Economics and Policy Institute (LEEP) at The University of Exeter.
With funding from Defra
This is a prototype version - the tool and the underlying econometric model remain under development.
ORVal reports values and visit estimates for existing and new greenspaces that are derived from a sophisticated model of recreational demand in England. As a result please be aware that these numbers are predictions of a model and not actual counts of visits to a particular greenspace or actual measures of the welfare which that greenspace provides.
While the model captures many important features that influence the value and visitation to greenspace it is not able to account for each park's unique characteristics. Rather, the figures provided by ORVal should be interpreted as indicating what we might expect for a typical greenspace with the given features in this location accounting for the availability of other greenspace and the characteristics of local population.
