Welcome to the website for GIS & GPS Resources for Landscape Management and Urban Forestry. This site provides resources for students and professionals who are interested in using geospatial technologies for planning and mapping purposes. The emphasis of this site is on GPS mapping of landscape features, particularly in urban environments. Students and others new to geospatial technology will find information here user-friendly and informative.

The Georgia Urban Tree Mapping Projects page showcases the current projects conducted by volunteers and students associated with the University of Georgia. There are also links here to other topic related websites. The Tree Inventory Training page provides training resources, including copies of power points used in the training sessions, and "how to" guides for those conducting inventory projects.The On-line Tutorial Resources page contains links to access tutorials provided by the manufacturers, such as ESRI and Trimble, for the software and hardware used by this department. The GPS Instruction and GIS Instruction pages address common tasks most often encountered by beginners. The Links page will provide you with access to on-line GPS maps and files.
