SUMMER / FALL 2011 UPDATE
New data, map updates, new features.
Here are the latest updates and enhancements to the OASIS interactive maps (more details
New aerial imagery
. Thanks to the NYS GIS Clearinghouse, we've added imagery from 2010 throughout the New York City.
. We've changed the way you can view the overhead imagery over time. Now you can move the aerial timeline slider across years to transition from one year to the next, creating the effect of a timelapse movie within the OASIS map.
For example, you can see what the World Trade Center site looked like
from above in 1996
, and then
, and more recently
. The overhead images show clearly how the building footprints are reflected in the memorial plaza fountains now under construction.
You can also see what the area likely looked like (via the Mannahatta Project) 400 years ago
when Henry Hudson sailed up the river
. Then position the aerial timeline slider inbetween 1609 and 1996 for a powerful overhead image of how Manhattan’s shoreline has changed.
Land use changes in lower Manhattan (and citywide)
: The historical land use maps – covering 2003 through 2010 -- help highlight how commercial properties have switched to residential in many areas in lower Manhattan.
More community data
: The latest example of linking mapped information from grassroots groups is the layer of skate parks in the city by longtime OASIS partner Open Road of NY. This also highlights the importance of current aerial imagery, with this view of the
Chelsea Piers Skate Park in 2010
still under construction in 2008
Look for more map updates soon as a result of OASIS partnerships with the Forest Service's StewMap project, the Comprehensive Restoration Plan for the NY/NJ Harbor, and food network mapping with the Food Systems Network of NYC.
