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? This session will explore the pros and cons of various platforms and technologies through three panelists describing their institutional need for online mapping, the chosen approach, and the results seen since implementation. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of the online map project lifecycle.
