Green Infrastructure Mapping

| Friday April 8th, 2005 | 0 Comments

greenmap.gifAn organization called “Natural Connections” has come out with a fabulous map of greater Chicago that charts the remaining “green infrastructure” of the region. That is, greenways, forests & wetlands, so that trails, flood control, stormwater issues, etc.. can be better understood.
Also significant, the map ignores political boundaries such as city limits and state borders, whereas previously one had to gather data from a multitude of dis-unified sources. It’s also really cool to look at.
[Download the map here. Warning – it’s a massive 8meg PDF]
