Maps and Apps, Tools and Tips
How we can connect more people to land through technology
The use of mobile technologies – including smart phones, tablets, and wearable technology – are on the rise across all socio-economic levels. Interactive maps and mobile applications are tools with which park and trail organizations can make it easy for people to get to, have a positive experience at, and stay connected to their parks and trails. What tools are available to us on a pro-bono basis, through partnerships, or on the market? What tips and advice would make any venture into the world of mobile apps easier to navigate?
Maps and Apps, Tools and Tips will be held at the Brower Center in downtown Berkeley. The program will run from 10am-12pm. At noon, an organic and locally sourced lunch will be served along with time for seeing colleagues, meeting new people, sharing ideas, and exchanging GPS coordinates.
Before, during and after the Gathering we'll be tweeting at #mapsapps13
