NYC Trees Listing

While this visualizes trees which an essential element of any urban city, this is also an experiment or model to visualize other datasets in an additive/subtractive format. This visualization allows one to quickly see distribution. Trees in the Bronx and Manhattan seem to be distributed more uniformly compared to the other three boroughs. With such high concentrations of certain trees, there is a risk of a pathogen, insect or environmental stress wiping out a large amount of trees. Also a sizable percentage of trees have been marked "unknown" in the dataset, making the dataset incomplete. Trees have been grouped by genus. For example, all maple species (Norway Maple, Silver Maple, etc.) have been aggregated as "Maple."
