Post-storm Urban Tree Risk Assessment Data Dictionary

This data dictionary was developed to be used to assess urban trees for hazards after a natural disaster. It was set up using Trimble technology (GPS Pathfinder Office software).

After Hurricane Katrina, urban trees were assessed for hazards in the Gulf Coast region by volunteer, professional arborists from around the world. Trees were located spatially using GPS equipment. Data collected for each tree were entered into a database using an established form or data dictionary. This data dictionary can be loaded into any GPS equipment that uses Trimble technology. This dictionary can (and should) be edited to address the specific needs of any community.
