Treepedia: a green view index that quantifies urban canopy coverage

An online map launched by the MIT Senseable City Lab, Treepedia measures cities’ green canopies in 20 urban centers across the globe, specifically the portion of trees and other vegetation that is visible above ground. The MIT team behind the project relied on data from Google Street View to create a “Green View Index,” which quantifies both overall tree coverage and the amount of coverage on a given street within a city.
