Toward that effort, SJC has enhanced and customized a popular open source application Open Tree Map to help citizen scientists map and manage the Jersey City Tree Inventory.  In this talk, SJC will walk through their successful tree mapping campaign that attracted over 450 volunteers and discuss how they helped volunteers improve data accuracy of through both education and technology.
SJC will also talk through the additional features and tech enhancements they are planning for the rest of the year. The talk will conclude with an open discussion about the technology features to answer questions about the platform, community stewardship and how to better engage the public for helping our urban forests.
