“Open source content and tools are at the core of automating the complex process of the New York City Environmental Quailty (CEQR) review application. City Environmental Quality Review, or CEQR, is the process by which New York City agencies determine what effect, if any, a discretionary action they approve may have upon the environment. A couple of seasoned GIS folks to step in and combine professional experience with geospatial tools and programming skills to offer a cost effective and streamlined process to work through the CEQR application.”
