Blooming Cherry Tree Information Map

Cherry Blossoms

Speaking of information maps, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden created a CherryWatch Blossom Status Map, which tracks the blooming of more than 200 cherry trees, from pre-, first, peak, and post-bloom. It's updated on weekdays during Hanami, the Japanese spring-time tradition of celebrating the cherry blossom season.

It is a simple, beautiful way of displaying information, promoting the Garden, and eliciting visitors.
