Institutions struggle with how to bring technology into their garden experience. With the importance of wayfinding and interpretation, an interactive map can help to share their story and ensure an extraordinary experience. But what approach is best?
From Google analytics to CompStat, we live in an era of big data. It’s not the size of the data set that matters, though; it’s what you do with it.

Public garden living collections are dynamic and often the best efforts of plant recorders cannot keep pace with the volume of new arrivals, transplants, propagation, phenology observations, and removals.
Botanical gardens and their living collections have unique but underutilized resources for plant biology research.
Digitization, integration, and optimization of collections data can pay dividends across the board from management efficiency to innovative research activity.
