Baton Rouge launches tree-mapping project
BATON ROUGE - East Baton Rouge Parish is using a mobile app to capture data about trees on public property, including possible power line dangers.
City-parish officials say the information is particularly important in preparing for and responding to severe storms, such as Hurricane Gustav in 2008.
Hexagon Geospatial's Mobile MapWorks program will track trees and catalog addresses for use in emergencies, public notifications and tax collection.
