Abstract: As part of the on-going efforts by the NJMC/MRRI GIS Group to provide GIS knowledge & infrastructure to the Meadowlands communities, the group has been asked to provide training on the use of a hand-held GPS unit (Trimble Nomad + GeoXH) in order to collect/ inventory the Borough of Rutherford’s shade trees. In addition to providing this service, the Borough will have a tool in quantifying the shade trees in-stock within the Borough’s limits by the use of mapping tools available through the Internet. Some of the information collected will include (but not limited to) the following fields: species name, condition/health, age, location, etc. The local Girl Scouts will assist in this project, with guidance from the Borough’s Shade Tree Committee. The first training was held at MRRI on January 14, 2008.
