Mapping Melbourne’s Trees

Urban trees have been shown to provide considerable health and financial benefits, but can be difficult to keep alive and help thrive in grueling city environments. In an exciting engagement effort, the City of Melbourne created a digital map of the city’s 70,000+ trees, to educate its residents and encourage them to get involved. Big data can help everyone to create greener cities!
