  • With i-Tree Canopy, you review Google Maps aerial photography at random points to conduct a cover assessment within a defined project area.
  • You draw your project area boundaries right onto Google Maps or you load an ESRI polygon shapefile in latitude / longitude coordinates.
  • i-Tree Canopy randomly generates sample points and zooms to each one so you can choose from your pre-defined list of cover types for that spot.
  • 500-1000 survey points are suggested; the more points you complete, the better your cover estimate for your study area.
  • If estimating tree cover, tree benefits can also be estimated.
  • Recommended web browsers: Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome
