Wednesday, November 14, 12:15 pm – 1:30 pm, or Saturday, November 17, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm – GIS at the Arboretum


Celebrate Geography Awareness Week (Nov. 11-17) and GIS Day (Nov 14) by learning about geospatial technology.

Register for a workshop to learn about the capabilities of geographic information systems (GIS) at the Arnold Arboretum. Donna will explain the basics of GIS, demonstrate how it is used at the Arboretum, and then lead a tour of the grounds using web-enabled mobile devices to explore the collections with the Arboretum’s mobile web app. Bring your Apple- or Android-based mobile device to class (we will have some extras for those who don’t have access to one). Two sessions will be held, the first on Wednesday, November 14 and the second on Saturday, November 17.
Free, but registration requested at https://my.arboretum.harvard.edu/Info.aspx?DayPlanner=1154&DayPlannerDate=11/14/2012.
