  • Date and Time: March 29 (Tuesday) at 17:00 GMT
  • Topic: FOSS/FOSS4G in Urban Forestry Applications in the USA
  • Presenter: Ian Hanou, Plan-it GEO http://www.planitgeo.com/

Talk abstract:

This presentation will introduce the use of FOSS/FOSS4G applications for urban forest management, outreach and planning. Case studies will highlight web/mobile apps from municipal, private and nonprofit sectors across the country. The first examples will focus on mobile field data collection, data management, maintenance tracking and reporting for urban tree inventories of parks, streets and private property planting projects. The second half will take a big picture view of the entire urban forest at a landscape scale using urban tree canopy assessment data in interactive online mapping applications. These tools will show how progressive organizations can view, plan, and grow their urban forest without knowledge of GIS software or training in data management.
