Reserve your webinar seat today for Mobile Citizen Science – Gathering Urban Forestry Data via the OpenTreeMap Apps.
Space is limited.
Tuesday, August 12, 2014 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
Learn how mobile apps can provide new opportunities for supporting citizen science and exploring the urban forest.
OpenTreeMap lets you collaboratively map the trees in your community. As part of an OpenTreeMap subscription, organizations can use the OpenTreeMap iOS and Android apps to encourage people to gather data out in the field using their smartphone devices.
We’ll discuss using mobile apps for data collection, and Danny Carmichael from TreePeople will also join us to describe how they are using mobile apps and tree mapping events to add data to their TreeMapLA website.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss how:
– Mobile apps can encourage participation in citizen science
– OpenTreeMap uses mobile technology
– TreeMapLA has developed mapping events and the lessons they have learned
