2023 App Winner

Street Tree Reporter

Author:   Laura Bernardi - Town of Orangeville

Software Used: ArcGIS Desktop/Pro, ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Survey 123, FME, ArcGIS Field Apps

Abstract: The Street Tree Reporter enables members of the public to report any concerns they may have regarding Street Trees in their community. When users make a submission, existing geometry and attributes are utilized with a structured unique ID to build a new report. Town staff are notified when a new report is submitted, and from there they can verify that the report is valid and create a work order. This process enables Town staff to track concerns and work orders that have been created overtime on every Street Tree in our inventory, promoting better management and overall health of the Street Trees
