New link address for the NYC community garden mapping project

  • Subject: [cg] New link address for the NYC community garden mapping project

To all,

I am pleased to annouce that maps and a wealth of information about New York City Community Gardens are now available on Open Accessible Space Information Systems (OASIS): www.oasisnyc.net.

The garden information has a custom search page located at:
http://www.oasisnyc.net/gardens/cenycmapsearch.asp
Frequent users of the site should update their bookmarks or favorites links to the Community Garden Mapping Project.

As many of you may know the Council on the Environment of New York City created and has maintained a GIS based Community Garden Mapping Project Website where community gardens can be located on interactive maps since April 2001.

Information on over 700 community gardens has been available on a web site devoted solely to community gardens, including land ownership, open hours, garden programs, membership, and physical features. Many gardens have a written description and a photo image provided by gardeners, New York City Department of Parks & Recreation GreenThumb, and other community greening organizations. CENYC has updated the website information regularly to correct any out-of-date information.

This new location replaces the maps and data that had been available on the Community Garden Mapping Project website. OASIS is a cooperative effort of non-profit open space and environmental organizations, city, state and federal agencies, and private companies. This website includes all publicly available open space and environmental information in digitized form that can be displayed on computer generated maps. The OASIS website and the original Community Garden Mapping Project website were both designed and developed by the New York Public Interest Research Group's Community Mapping Assistance Project (CMAP).

As before, users can search for gardens by garden name, zipcode, neighborhood or community board. Additionally, the new website allows searching by street address and also allows the user to pan or move the map on the computer screen, and to zoom in or out. Follow the simple directions on screen or view the help page to perform these functions. Many additional layers of information and aerial photos can also be displayed on the OASIS website that were not available on the former CGMP website.

Website visitors will also be able to identify any other lot in the city and view information from the NYC Department of Finance about zoning and ownership. As with any database about property that doesn't give real time data, this information may be outdated or inaccurate. CENYC assumes no responsibility for the accuracy of any information included on this website.

I hope the new website is even more helpful than the former site.

Thanks

Lenny Librizzi
