Singapore has outshone 16 other cities in a study measuring the amount of greenery in urban areas, sealing its status as a "City in a Garden". Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the World Economic Forum, who used data from Google Street View, found that the Republic's green cover is almost 30 per cent. This is more than other cities in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Australia that were part of this stage of the study.
