This web based application compares tree canopy coverage over time using satellite imagery procured from the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP.) This application allows the user to “swipe” tree canopy views between multiple years. This tool will allow your jurisdiction to qualitatively measure long term trends in the changing tree canopy. Thus facilitating and promoting tree canopy preservation and making tree replacement an integral part of the land development process.
