National Geographic Uses SAL Tree Canopy Datasets for Arbor Day Article

National Geographic used the high-resolution tree canopy datasets we developed for New York City, Philadelphia, DC, Baltimore, Tampa, and Pittsburgh in their online Arbor Day article Nine Cities That Love Their Trees.  Because it is National Geographic the cartography is top-notch.  Check it out.

Very cool stuff. Is there any way to access the GIS layers being displayed here?

The ones we generated are public. What datasets are you looking for? Happy to help.

I'm looking for the urban tree canopy shapefile for Baltimore. Any help would be very much appreciated!

You can find the Baltimore Metro land cover data on the ChesapeakeView web site.
