Tree City

Visualize and interact with Philadelphia's street trees in the TreeCity WebGL demo. You can also browse the source code on GitHub.

This is a WebGL demo I made in Unity using Mapbox's Unity SDK. Before this demo, I had only read or heard about GIS and didn't understand it at a deeper level other than "it's about mapping." After Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, I started to learn more about how storm-based flooding becomes more prevalent with the mass removal of trees in urban areas. Out of curiosity I looked at street tree maps where I live, in Philadelphia, PA, to gauge how well gathered our data is.
