3D tree map data is being used to help protect trees and plan new planting schemes. A unique countrywide map detailing the location, height and canopy cover of tree locations is helping the UK’s Tamworth Borough Council protect important amenity trees in the borough. Tamworth is an eight time gold winner of national Heart of England in Bloom competition and the Bluesky National Tree Map is helping the Council identify, manage and protect trees, including those subject to Tree Preservation Orders and other planning constraints. The tree map data is accessed via the authority’s GIS and is available to all staff via its Web Mapping Service (WMS). Bluesky National Tree Map data offers better protection for the most important trees in the Borough and inform future planting plans.
