We visited the Arnold Arboretum and Donna Tremonte, an applications programer, showed us how the arboretum uses GIS to map over 15,000 plants! Donna explained to us what GIS is, how you use GIS, how to use the arboretum's interactive map and how she got involved with plants and GIS. When she finished, we went to the visitors center and then walked around the arboretum. Is was REALLY cold out but we hunted and found the arboretum's tree of the month - a Dawn Redwood. We had lots of fun and learned a lot. THANKS DONNA!
Credit to everyone for the awesome pictures!
