WSP Eco Map is a mobile map of the trees in the park, the historic flow and contemporary route of the channelized Minetta Brook/Creek, and other environmental assets in the park such as nesting boxes.
The mobile map was designed by GIS and web developer Casey Brown. The tree data is derived from historic and contemporary tree surveys of Washington Square Park commissioned by the NYC Parks and Recreation Department. Paper maps were copied from the map archives at the Olmsted Center in Flushing. The interactive Minetta Brook is from the work of Steve Duncan at undercity.org.
