Mapping Fruit Trees: An Efficient Web Map Data Entry System
Track: Web Mapping
Authors: Christine Lam, Tom Weisenberger
Detecting invasive insects is extremely important to protect California agriculture. A web mapping and editing application with mobile capabilities has been developed at LA County so that paper files stored in binders can be converted into a GIS database. The Pest Detection Viewer will be demonstrated to show how the latest GIS technology, database spatial queries, and tools provided by Esri and Latitude Geographics have enabled users to efficiently enter over half a million fruit trees.
