A task force commissioned by Gov. Gavin Newsom has unveiled a new online tool that it says will provide a first-of-its-kind map showing all forest and fire prevention work completed in California. Danny Franco, senior project manager with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy nonprofit organization, said One Tam has already been working to create regional-level data on public lands on and surrounding Mount Tamalpais. “The dashboard that the task force has developed is very much in line with the types of tools we’ve been developing regionally to support cross-jurisdictional and landscape-level projects,” Franco said.
