APGG and Center for Public Horticulture Offer Second GIS Workshop

The Alliance for Public Gardens GIS and the Center for Public Horticulture have teamed up for a second offering of their successful GIS for Public Gardens: Getting Started workshop to be held on Monday, June 20, 2011 at the University of Delaware, just an hour away from the APGA conference in Philadelphia, PA. If you are interested in mapping your garden's plant collection, this full-day workshop will guide you through the process of creating a GIS for a public garden or similar institution using Esri ArcGIS and the newly released version of the ArcGIS Public Garden Data Model. Participants will learn how to download and install the data model template, how to create and edit map features in ArcGIS, how to collect data in the garden using a mobile device, and how to create plant collection maps. Space is limited to 25 participants. Registration fee of $160.00 is due at time of registration and includes full-day workshop, course materials, refreshments, and lunch. Walk-in registration fee is $175 if seats are available.
