The outdoor parks, courts, and fields for this dataset were identified using Google Maps. Each data point was geocoded using the latitude and longitude points of each outdoor park, court, and field that Google Maps identified as being a part of Newark into a spreadsheet.


Steps to reproduce

Use Google Maps to identify these green spaces. Next, click on the center of the space to create a reference point, which will provide the coordinates of its location. Copy and paste the latitude and longitude of each data point accordingly into two separate columns in a Google Sheet or Excel Spreadsheet. Save the file as a .csv, which can then be imported into both arcGIS Online and Pro as data entries and reflected on a map.
