In order to help GIS users make the most of the Garden
State Greenways (GSG) data, the New Jersey Conservation Foundation
has created a planning tool to assist in the ranking and prioritizing
of Garden State Greenways hubs. This functionality is embedded
in an ArcView 3.x project. The planning tool is written to
work with the Garden State Greenways
With a click of a button, the tool provides two ways to analyze
the Garden State Greenways data. The first allows users to
create an equal area classification of the Greenway hubs based
on the ranked values of any of the assessment criteria. Either
unpreserved or total acres of the hubs can be used for the
classification. The second selects a user-chosen number of
acres of the top scoring hubs based any assessment criterion.
As with the ranking analysis, the user can choose to select
hubs based on unpreserved or total area.
The tool can be downloaded here
(zip file, 126 KB). It includes comprehensive instructions
in PDF format (also available
separately (PDF, 146 KB)).
