GIS and Survey Technologies Used to Map the Desert Botanical Garden
Track: Public Gardens Solutions
Authors: Veronica Nixon
The Desert Botanical Garden recently finished a multi-year project to map its collection of nearly 20,000 plants. Throughout the course of the project we tried many different approaches including the laser range finder, survey GPS, total station, (georeferenced) elevated photographs on a stationary camera and on a quadcopter, and webmaps on the Collector App for ArcGIS. This talk will discuss the pros and cons of each approach.
