Modern Tools for Managing Urban PARKS
March 20, 2020 | Elizabeth Schulte
I am in awe of city parks, as we all should be, and the value that openly available green space has a strong effect on the fabric of our cities.
As our major metropolitan areas continue to grow, the importance of our parks is ever-increasingly significant and is gaining more recognition. I remember as an urban foresty student the first time I visited Grant Park in Chicago, experiencing this beautiful place of culture, art, architecture, trees, music, and gathering place for a picnic, fresh air, and getting out for a walk. At PlanIT Geo™ we see the value in urban parks and their importance, this is why Ian Hanou, Founder and CEO, has doubled down on the further development of our product TreePlotter™ PARKS, formally Parks Plotter.
“Urban parks are critical to communities, the urban forest, and green infrastructure, and our commitment is to technology to manage these assets for multiple co-benefits.” – Ian Hanou
