Mapping and new technologies, 07 October 2020, ONLINE EVENT
(information below from PlantNetwork)
Join us on Wednesday 7th October for the PlantNetwork Plant Records Group Meeting 2020. The Plant Records Group meets annually to discuss plant recording and associated issues. This year, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we will be online and hopefully more accessible to more horticultural professionals.
The theme for this meeting is the role of mapping, apps and new technology in plant records management – a fitting subject for the first virtual meeting of the group. We will explore the latest innovations that can be used in gardens to assist in the creation, maintenance and management of plant records, from developments in digital mapping to the latest apps and software. Innovators will be online to showcase their technology and will be happy to discuss ideas to develop products and services further.
There is an opportunity for delegates to present their own experiences, challenges and solutions in the field of plant records through the ‘Lightning Talks’ format: delegates have five minutes to talk about a plant records topic of their choice, providing an opportunity to discuss issues with peers. Please indicate interest in this session at time of booking.
Confirmed speakers include Tim Brewer, Senior Lecturer in Resource Survey at Cranfield University; Jonathan Smith of Pear Technology Services; and Waheed Arshad of Candide Gardening.
Suitable for everyone working in plant records in botanic, public and private gardens as well as horticulturists interested in the use and application of new technology to gardens.
Cost: £10 for PlantNetwork members. Includes all online support and watch again services. Non-members are also welcome to attend (£25).
