Map of Ginkgo trees and more in New York City


Jill Hubley created an interesting interactive map of the 52 species of street trees - including Ginkgo trees - in New York City.

You can explore the map in two ways: 
by using the tooltips and zoom function to identify particular trees, or by using the filter option to see the distribution of each species. 
You can also use the option of disabling the base map for a starker, more abstract view.

More info on Jill Hubley's blog.
