Great Rivers Greenway Citizen Driven Regional Plan
ABNA provided GIS services for Great Rivers Greenway (formerly Metropolitan Parks & Recreation District) one of the largest GIS projects in the region. Currently this planning project is one of the largest in the country, at a minimum it provides a cohesive corridor of parks and trails throughout St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County covering an area of approximately 1200 square miles. ABNA collected data such as soils, topography, designated open spaces, flood plain information, governmental units, recreation facilities including existing parks, trails and sport facilities, in addition to proposed recreation facilities, for three counties, St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County. A majority of the data’s resource was generated from various governmental agencies and aerial photographs. Additional resource entailed GPS field data collection being performed for verification and recent construction locations. This massive data collection was then compiled and combined utilizing GIS to support GRG planning efforts for this comprehensive community engagement project. Highlights and Achievements.
Utilized GIS to manipulate one of the largest planning projects to date
Coordinated several individually referenced data sources into one from various counties
Final product allowed GRG to more successfully plan contiguous park corridors between St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County
