Urbanization has brought city dwellers under stress; resulting in the renewal and development of open spaces to create urban green areas or remodeling existing ones; gives a breath of renewal in the wider area of an urban area. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the appropriateness’ of using handheld GPS for mapping urban green for developing regeneration proposals. Two different types of GPS and various topographic methods were used for comparing the results of field measurements with the “true value” - in our case was that of the KTIMATOLOGIO AE - because it gives acceptable by the State surveying quotes. The utilization of the park was based on the method of mild and low regeneration cost. The results of this research are given in two stages; the surveying and the planning. The surveying results from comparing measurements between two types of GPS and the Ktimatologio AE are within the industrial error of each instrument. As far as urban park planning and utilization in the campus of AUTH a reconstruction plan is proposed based on low cost in intervention on urban green.
