The sustainability of Florida's urban and community trees and forests requires the participation of government, businesses, non-profits, volunteers and the general public. TampaTreeMap is a web-based map and database that enables everyone to collaboratively create an accurate and informative inventory of the trees in the City of Tampa and on the campus of the University of South Florida.
The TampaTreeMap was developed by a partnership between the University of South Florida, City of Tampa, and UF-IFAS/ Hillsborough Extension Service. Funding was provided by the Florida Forest Services, Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (contract no. 19622), the City of Tampa and the University of South Florida.
The TampaTreeMap is based on open source software that originated from the Urban Forest Map project in San Francisco and was subsequently developed by Azavea, a Philadelphia-based software design and development firm, with funding from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The TampaTreeMap is now part of the OpenTreeMap Cloud version that is supported by Azavea. Communities who wish to implement their own tree map website can subscribe to a cloud version or implement the open-source code available at OpenTreeMap.org. Florida communities are encouraged to contact the project management team at the University of South Florida who can provide advice and implementation services.
