8:30am -9am: Network over coffee & tea

9am-10am: Attendees will learn tree inventory best practices and efficiencies from professionals. This portion of the workshop will be indoors and introduce participants to tree inventory data collection using GPS vs. GIS methods, online and offline modes, map tools, browser & web services technology, and training on data management on a desktop, tablet, or smartphone.

10am-11am: The second section will be held outdoors, where participants will learn to access, navigate, view, edit, add, and manage tree data on the cloud from a smartphone or tablet devices and see data updates in real-time. Offline (disconnected) data collection and syncing when on WIFI will also be introduced. Attendees are encouraged to bring a web-enabled device or pair up with someone. Participants will learn how to map tree X/Y coordinates without using GPS, to select a base map with varying conditions and ways to deal with sunlight issues on mobile screens.

11am-12pm: The workshop will conclude indoors, where we analyze the newly collected data, perform spatial and attribute queries, export data to Excel and GIS formats, and create custom data-driven reports and maps. Advanced tools will be introduced, time permitting, such as viewing i-Tree benefits, Tree Protection Zones, tree appraisal values (based on CTLA), work order tracking/automation, and ISA TRAQ forms/fields. The course will wrap-up with a Q&A discussion and list of resources.

12pm-1pm: Network and discussion over catered lunch.
