Notes from the ZeroDown Labs team

For our ‘Near Greenery’ filter, our data of all green spaces in the Bay Area from OpenStreetMap. This includes parks, gardens, nature reserves, and everything in-between. We find all homes in close proximity to these green spaces, and assign them green scores based on the type of greenspace and the proximity of the home to the green space. Any homes with a score above a certain threshold are labelled as ‘Near Greenery’, and voila, here you have our ‘Greenery Filter.’
