The project for the Greater Worcester Land Trust was proposed to help identify conservation priorities and perform a chronological analysis of open space. Through interviews and analysis, we identified the important criteria for defining a priority. We collected relevant data and compiled it into a database. The database aids organizations in identifying priorities and also allows conservation organizations to compare their attributes. We connected the database to GIS for further analyses. Our analysis compared open space from 1938-2001.
