The Trust for Public Land is using GIS to define and measure conservation impacts at all scales and to strategically pinpoint those places we love and want to protect using collaborative processes. You'll learn how GIS is being used in projects like ParkScore, Climate-Smart Cities, LandVote and Greenprinting. You'll see innovative applications that bring conservation projects to life in the 3D environment and on mobile devices. Find out how The Trust for Public Land's GIS program is shaping the story of our collective conservation impacts by providing powerful GIS visual information and tools.
