The LRWP September 20 general meeting will be in the CDM Smith Edison offices where CDM Smith will provide a live overview of the NYC GreenHUB tool.
CDM Smith is working with the NYC DEP Office of Green Infrastructure to develop a Project Tracking and Asset Management System capable of compiling, mapping and reporting data from thousands of GI installations throughout their service life. This integrated system, named NYC GreenHUB, presents a user-friendly, multi-function interface that enables comprehensive data management and access control. NYC GreenHUB is a web-based system that automates the procedures used by OGI to collect, review, manage and report information. DEP utilizes its asset maintenance feature to manage and monitor maintenance activities such as repairs, replacement, pruning and replanting. The system provides geospatial visualization of GI assets with easy access to data throughout the asset lifecycle – from asset initiation, siting, design, and construction through operations and maintenance.
