Urbanbase: Key to Urban Forestry Information
Arthur W. Magill
Abstract: To accomplish effective communication and technology transfer in urban forestry planning and management, an urban forestry data base needs to be developed. URBANBASE is a proposed information retrieval and exchange system, computerized and interdisciplinary. If operational, URBANBASE would provide relevant references and digests of documents, in simple language to urban forestry practitioners, consultants, city and other local governments. It would service cities throughout the United States and parts of Canada, providing technical guidance and solutions to everyday problems in urban forestry.
