What’s New in Version 2.0?
You’ll notice that the Urban Forest Map is looking quite different! Technology has advanced in the years since we launched the first version of the Map, and we have incorporated those advances into our software. Here’s what’s new.
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 — you can track your stewardship by entering info about your tree watering, pruning, and mulching activities. You can also 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 and wrapped up early in 2017. Tree specialists have documented the exact location, species and current condition of every street tree and identified vacant spots where new trees can go. This info will be a great help to the city’s urban forest managers.
