Campus Landscape Mapping (What's that tree called?)

February 27, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Kuykendall 101 Add to Calendar

Shrinking budgets require Facilities Managers to create tools to educate and communicate with their customers, better manage their resources, and make data driven decisions about storm water, irrigation management, pollution reduction, and carbon sequestration.

In this session, Buildings and Grounds Management Director Roxanne Adams and Landscape Assistant Nathan Ortiz will share how they used open source programming to provide their customers with search, sort, and navigational functions of campus trees from desktop or mobile devices. This project directly supports sustainable management decisions, while simultaneously increasing biodiversity and the education potential of the landscape.

The target audience is two-fold: landscape crew and supervisors use the system for grounds management, while general public can use the maps to intelligently navigate the landscape.
