Constraints in the development of urban green space has led to numerous researches with the aim of determining the per capita and area for green area in each region and comparing with standards. Meanwhile, the selection of appropriate inventory method is part of the initial actions that effect on relevant policies. Therefore in the this study, 7 inventory methods based on three quantitative criteria and four qualitative criteria in multiple criteria decision making environment, using the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) were evaluated. Degree of importance (weight) of each criterion and alternative was computed by obtaining opinions from experts group and using Expert Choice software. The results indicated that the two quality criteria of “extensiveness of application of the results” and also “administrative and social problems” with the relative weight of 0.349 and 0.005 had the most and the least effect on choosing an inventory method. Sampling using aerial photo, which obtained the highest weight in most of the criteria, was selected as preeminent inventory method and the methods of 100% inventory, systematic random sampling, randomized block sampling 2, simple random sampling, randomized block sampling one- and two-stage sampling, respectively, were the next priorities.
