Welcome to the New Orleans Urban Waters Mapping Project!

This community mapping project aims to maps eight urban restoration sites around New Orleans. Join the Gulf Coast Google Group to get involved!

Gulf Coast Google Group

This data from this project has been collected, compiled and organized by volunteer efforts of the New Orleans Public Lab Community. Over the course of the coming year, we will work to map all of these sites twice. This page is the results of our compiled data as it becomes available. Read more about our project in this article by Chris Staudinger from the NOLA Defender and this research note.
