Building Better Parks & Tree Inventories with Web GIS

December 2, 2015

Organization:  City of Guelph

The City of Guelph—located in southern Ontario an hour northwest of Toronto—boasts over 1,000 hectares of parks and open space, 70 km of trails and a tree canopy that covers 20% of the municipality’s 86 km2 land area. In August 2014, the City of Guelph Parks & Open Space GIS Project was initiated to improve the park inventory system and the way information related to park assets is shared. Using ArcGIS, the project team implemented a Web GIS workflow—including internal field data collection apps—that have successfully increased the frequency and accuracy of updates to the City’s parks, open space and tree inventories.
