    inland lakes or ponds exceeding 1 5 acres in size and they were identified using the aerial photographs and digitized manually Finally data on conservation parks was provided by the City s Parks Department and added to our database Because of the range of ecological services they provide natural areas relate to all four sustainability goals In order to constitute effective habitat for viable wildlife populations Natural Areas however a natural area must be sufficiently large Research has shown that at least 25 acres of compact forested area are needed to sustain a diversity of bird populations and at least 250 acres are needed for populations of small to medium sized mammals Whether or not it is practical or even feasible for a particular urban area to provide such habitat remains somewhat of a value judgment The standards we used therefore are derived partly from scientific literature and partly from our own analysis of Madison described in the next section Our GIS analysis revealed six 25 acre patches of natural space and at least two additional potential 25 acre sites With Madison s population of 208 000 eight 25 acre sites citywide translates into 25 acres per 25 000 residents

    Madison Metro provides service in areas that are well below the seven unit density threshold For our standard then we calculated the average density of census blocks currently served by Madison Metro per district and used that as our district minimum To measure bus service in Madison we obtained a GIS data layer of Madison Metro bus stops from the City Planning Department In ArcGIS a 1 4 mile buffer
