Have you seen this map before?
The GSP Reference Map helps us track restoration within individual parks while also monitoring progress citywide. We unveiled this new map last year on the ArcGIS Online platform, and it is a key tool in carrying out our goal to re-establish healthy forests in the city.
We have created an FAQ and developed a few YouTube tutorials to bring everyone up to speed about how to use the map to its fullest potential. There a few tricks to help you find what you are looking for in the parks as well as some embedded links with information about how we will pursue restoration in each zone.
