APGA-Esri GIS Symposium 2
Attendees of the 2015 APGA-Esri GIS Symposium at the Alliance for Public Gardens GIS map gallery display.
2015 APGA-Esri GIS Symposium

July 20-22, San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA Many public gardens are already using GIS to help manage their grounds and collections. Now, new cloud-based GIS tools promise to transform our garden's collection maps into story-telling tools and apps that can help us engage with visitors, teach science literacy, and advance plant conservation worldwide. We need your voice at the table on how to best move these ideas forward. Please join us for the APGA-Esri 2015 GIS Symposium on July 20 - 22, 2015, a special track within the 2015 Esri International User Conference in San Diego, CA. This symposium allows for a full immersion in the GIS experience, coupled with two break-away days-a "community conversation"- where we discuss alternatives and work together to design a path forward for the future of cloud-based GIS in public gardens.
