OpenStreetMap US

Urban forests are widely recognized as an important resource for healthy cities. However, their management and conservation is complicated by a lack of data and monitoring. In 2018, the USFS noted that the USA is losing approximately 28 to 36 million urban trees per year.

‘iSeaTree’ is a mobile app that was developed to help beginners identify and track urban trees. In addition to being an identification tool it works with the USFS’s iTree API to calculate the CO2, H2O, and air pollution benefits of urban trees.

This 5-minute talk will introduce users to the app and prepare them for the hands-on workshop taking place on June 11th (Sunday, 10:00-10:50 am).

No recording is available from this session.
