As I’ve mentioned in recent posts, we’ve been working on a few maps for the Arboretum. One map is of the significant trees within the Arboretum. And since we now have the list of addresses from the City of Columbus of where trees can be planted, that, too, has been turned into a map. [Thanks, John!] So, if you go to the Maps section of the blog, you can see John’s mashup of the maps of the significant trees along with the map of where trees can be planted by the city. Both are interactive with markers that can be clicked on for more information. Sample information for the significant trees would be:
Location: Front yard
Common name: Oak, White (2)
In this case, the symbol “w” stands for white oak; John’s included a legend to explain the various symbols for the types of trees
Sample information of the city’s addresses for tree planting is:
# oFront tree: 1
Comments: OLD STUMP
MapPageNumber: 19 J-14
The Planting Code is the size of tree that can be planted.
Another change to the blog is I’ve added a roster of our Steering Committee. Our little group has grown by quite a bit, and I expect it will grow even more as we get additional partnerships going.
Until next time!
