Sneek a Peek at DeepMap Lincoln Park

A Small Sample of the Lincoln Park Tree Map

We are still in the early days of preparing our tree map of Chicago's Lincoln Park  DePaul undergraduates Core Cote, Jake Hartle, and Erin Weber worked on this over the last couple of years.  We have most of the trees in the park mapped, species identified, sized, and the condition evaluated. 

On this map (prepared by DePaul Geography major Alex Ulp) we display just a little taste of a large data set (this shows a fraction of the total tree population mapped). Ultimately, and hopefully before too long, we will complete the map.  I'll be recruiting more students to work on this in Spring.

I'll keep you posted.

A nice little Chicago Tribune piece on our work can be found here.  DePaul covered the story here.
