How to get information
Each green space location is partitioned into parcels or polygons on the map that contain specific geographic information.
- Click on the polygon of interest to obtain the location information.
Each polygon has a name, type, short code, and description.
- The objective of the short code (e.g., ER1) is to allow ease of indexing data sets to the map for visualizing data trends.
Additionally, each polygon identifies who manages the area and what management activities occur along with the frequency and methods.
The legend defines the symbols and colours representing features on the map.
The basemaps tool (four squares icon) allows users to change the reference map onto which the EcoMap is overlaid. Options for the basemap vary. Pictured here is the Streets (Night) basemap.
