Using Google Earth to Find Food Producing Urban Gardens and other Education GIS News

John Taylor, a doctoral candidate working with crop sciences researcher Sarah Taylor Lovell [at the University of Illionois], was skeptical about the lists of urban gardens provided to him by local non-governmental organizations (NGOs)....

Using these indicators and Google Earth images, he examined the documented sites. Of the 1,236 "community gardens," only 160, or 13 percent, were actually producing food.

The false positives were planter boxes or landscaping.
