The Alliance for Public Gardens GIS is a consortium of biological collection managers and GIS professionals who are dedicated to making geographic information systems more accessible to arboreta, botanical gardens, zoos, and other managed landscapes for use in asset management, biodiversity conservation, education, and scientific research.
In addition to their transformative local impacts providing wildlife habitat, improving air and water quality, moderating climate, and increasing property values, public gardens also engage in numerous conservation and education activities that make a global impact. This year's display will educate attendees about the important conservation and education activities that public gardens participate in and showcase the innovative geospatial work of Alliance partners at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, Atlanta Botanical Garden, Chicago Botanical Garden, Desert Botanical Garden, Missouri Botanical Garden, Montgomery Botanical Center, and UC Davis Arboretum.
The display will also provide tables and seating for collaborating with colleagues or just taking a break. Please stop by during the Monday night Map Gallery Opening and Evening Reception to speak with members of the Alliance for Public Gardens GIS team about their new GIS Training for Museum Professionals program and Esri's exciting new solutions for public gardens. www.apgg.org
