Using GIS to manage water irrigation at the Huntington Library
Track: Facilities Operations and Maintenance
Authors: Ethan Sockwell
With climate changing, water shortages faced by Southern California is a serious issue. Public gardens, such as the Huntington Library, maintain a large stock of plants that need irrigation regularly, resulting in large amounts of water consumption, which often is excessive. A web based GIS is developed to manage the irrigation system at the garden spatially. This enables monitoring water usage and adjusting the irrigation based on the needs of specific plants, to reduce water consumption.
