Greenbelt Alliance: Greenbelt Mapper Webinar

From Greenbelt Alliance:

Have you ever wondered why a certain piece of land has never been developed, or perhaps who is planning on building on it? Or what lands are necessary for clean drinking water, local food, or wildlife? Perhaps you’d like to know a city’s plan for developing beyond its urban footprint?

Well now the new Greenbelt Mapper provides a comprehensive evaluation of the Bay Area’s open spaces surrounding its cities. Showcasing the results of the At Risk 2012 research, the mapper has recently been updated to allow users greater accessibility to this information — for both the novice mapper inquiring about a piece of land as well as the experienced GIS user wanting to download the data for his or her own analysis.

Join Policy Researcher Adam Garcia for a webinar on October 3 at 1 p.m.to answer questions on the Greenbelt Mapper. Learn about the Greenbelt Mapper and give us your feedback on the new tool.
