Every tree, counted.
Every Street Tree NYC is a bot created by Dr. Angus Andrea Grieve-Smith, Timm Dapper, Elber Carneiro, and Laura Silver, and inspired by @everylotnyc. It posts images from Google Street View of the locations of every tree from the 2015 New York Trees Count census done by the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. You can learn more about the bot on one of the authors’ website.
It is important to make this much clear: @everytreenyc may help to remind us that no census is ever flawless or complete, but it is not meant as a critique of the enterprise of tree counts. Similarly, I do not believe that @everylotnyc was meant as an indictment of property databases. On the contrary, just as @everylotnyc depends on the imperfect completeness of the New York City property database, @everytreenyc would not be possible without the imperfect completeness of the Trees Count 2015 census.
