Urban Forest Metrix will be conducting a half-day workshop at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point campus. On January 7, from 1PM – 4PM, attendees will learn about using smart phones and tablets for arboricultural tasks and the Urban Forest Metrix solution.
This is a good opportunity to learn how the transition to tracking tree information digitally can save time, improve diagnosis on trees, and provide reports and maps to clients that are much more impressive. Attendees will get hands-on experience with these systems and learn about the following:
– Smart phones and tablets for arborists- how they work, what you can do with them, GPS accuracy, ruggedness, other forestry/ecology tools, etc
– The Urban Forest Metrix management system- setting up client files, collecting tree data, managing proposals, work orders and providing reports to different sorts of clients, ranging from homeowners to large institutions.
Below is the agenda.
Attendees can bring their own laptops. A limited number of demo iPads will be available, but attendees should bring iPhones or iPads if they have their own. Cost is $50, refreshments will be provided. Attendees should bring their own lunch. Please register with Donn Downey by Friday, January 2, 2015.
