  • Training Date:
  • Training Time:

Parks are key to healthy, thriving communities. However, questions always arise on how state and local governments can manage and maintain these open spaces while improving the overall experience for visitors. Parks require managing assets and infrastructure, monitoring ecosystem health, and ensuring that programs and offerings for the public match demographics and lifestyles.

Join us Thursday, March 19 from 2-3 p.m. E.T./11 a.m. – noon PT to learn how organizations are applying geographic information systems (GIS) technology to modernize their workflows, analyze park use and conservation, and improve communication with elected officials and the public. You’ll also be able to earn one CPE.

Specifically, you’ll learn:

  • How GIS establishes four technology tenets governments need to deliver smart parks: planning and engineering, operational efficiency, data-driven performance and civic inclusion.
  • How establishing a geospatial infrastructure can help parks improve the efficiency of their operations and the management of their services.
  • Examples of how successful state and local parks are leveraging GIS to adapt and better serve their evolving communities.
