This week we hosted a webinar with TreeKIT on tracking and measuring the impact of green infrastructure with OpenTreeMap. As climates change and more regions face severe heat and drought, tracking green infrastructure is a necessary first step to measuring its impact and identifying the best locations for additional green infrastructure resources. With OpenTreeMap, you can increase public awareness of the value of green infrastructure and promote community stewardship. For users that provide local data and calculations, OpenTreeMap can also measure the money and water your green infrastructure saves each year.
As part of this webinar, we explored how:
- OpenTreeMap can be used to gather and maintain data related to rain barrels, bioswales and other features
- To increase public education of the benefits of green infrastructure
- To promote installation and stewardship of green infrastructure
