What’s New in Version 2.0?
You’ll notice that the Urban Forest Map is looking quite different! In the six years since we launched the first version of the Map, there have been big changes in technology (imagine—at that time there were no smart phones!), and we’re ready to incorporate them into our software. Here’s some of what you can expect.
The new version of the Map uses “responsive design” tools, so it changes to suit the screen you’re using–phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop. The way you add or edit trees has been streamlined too, for fewer clicks.
Now you can do more than add and edit trees. New features allow you to track stewardship by logging the trees you’ve watered, pruned, or mulched and to map your sidewalk garden to track the stormwater benefits it’s providing.
San Francisco’s first ever citywide street tree census, EveryTree SF, kicked off in January 2016. Tree specialists are identifying the exact location, species and current condition of every street tree and finding vacant spots where new trees can go. We’re publishing that data on the Map as it comes in.
