LinkedIn is a business-oriented social networking site that is mainly used for professional networking. LinkedIn connects you to your trusted contacts and helps you exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with a broader network of professionals. The APPG group on LinkedIn is similar in function to our Google Group, but offers additional features such as a news feed and job postings. The APGG will continue to use both the Google Group and the LinkedIn group as forums.
To join the APGG group on LinkedIn, visit the LinkedIn website at www.linkedin.com and serach for the Alliance for Public Gardens GIS.
YouTube is a video sharing website on which users can upload, share, and view videos. The APPG channel on YouTube provides visitors with the opportunity to view online videos related to using GIS at botanical gardens and zoos. The UC Davis Arboretum plans to post the GIS training videos they create for their current IMLS grant on this site.
