Property Features Mapping with the Avenza App

Room: N/A - Meet outside at Usdan Outdoor Commons
Intro Level, Intermediate Level, Advanced Level

Land stewards will be introduced to some basic mapping with the Avenza app. Using waypoints and tracks, stewards will learn how to both navigate and collect data when on a property. Participants will create tracks, waypoints, sample grids, geofences; map an area and navigate to a feature. These exercises will help with the mapping of trail work, mapping of invasive control work, finding property boundaries, finding a property feature, creating and navigating a sampling grid, the use of geofences to create feature buffers, and taking photo waypoints. The workshop will be entirely outside. Please dress appropriately for the weather that day. Please have the Avenza app downloaded to your phone before the workshop, with the CLCC map below loaded into Avenza on your phone before the workshop. Instructions on how to do this are on the first page of the handout below.
