Mapping and Geographic Data
back to: Greenways home
An integral part of visualizing greenways is locating them geographically via maps. This mapping can provide information on where to find greenway projects as well as provide context. This context can put a specific greenway project in the backdrop of other geographic data, such as environmental management mapping, air/water quality data, relations to existing greenways, as well as aerial and satellite photography. Below are sample screen shots from the Upper Neuse River (North Carolina) data collections that illustrate the power of using geographic data. This data can be found on the NCSU Libraries server and includes geographic data of all kinds.
