The Alliance for Public Gardens GIS is thrilled to celebrate the 100th download of the ArcGIS Public Garden Data Model since our Beta Program began on March 17, 2011. The data model was downloaded for the 100th time by the Australian National Botanical Gardens in Canberra, Australia who have joined the ranks of users and partners from 18 other countries around the world that are employing the model to help manage their living collections. With this milestone, we would like to announce the end of our successful Beta Program on December 31, 2011. Current Beta Program partners may continue on with the program for six months from the signing of their partnership agreement, and new users, current users, and partners may continue to use the data model, free of charge, forever. Thank you to everyone that has participated in the Beta Program and has helped to make the ArcGIS Public Garden Data Model so successful!
