  1. 1. OPENTREEMAP: COLLABORATIVE DATA MANAGEMENT FOR THE URBAN FOREST
  2. 2. Azavea is an award-winning geospatial software design and development company based in Philadelphia. The firm was organized in 2000 to create technologically advanced solutions for web-based geospatial data visualization and analysis. OPENTREEMAP: COLLABORATIVE DATA MANAGEMENT FOR THE URBAN FOREST One of those solutions is OpenTreeMap, an open source software system that makes it easier and more affordable for urban communities to manage tree planting and renewal efforts that support their local ecosystems and improve the quality of life for all citizens.
  3. 3. The key unmet need for OpenTreeMap is the provision of low- cost, user-friendly, web-based tools for collaborative urban forestry management and long-term ecosystem benefits assessment. In many cities, local citizens, students, and nonprofit organizations that are passionate about greening their communities supplement government tree tending activities by performing inventories, planting and caring for new trees, and providing other vital support. Prior to OpenTreeMap, these activities had been difficult to coordinate, tended to be focused in only a few geographic areas, and did not have the long-term continuity necessary to generate a substantial impact over time. OpenTreeMap provides the necessary tools that government and non- government stakeholders need to work together effectively, share critical information, and document ongoing progress.
