Joy Arden
Applying Modern Technology in the Landscape: GIS Mapping

Living in the digital age, the arboretum adopts modern practices to understand and share their extensive collections. The gathering of data has been upgraded from historical paper maps to high-quality mapping technology. Using the data, we can manage, quantify, and improve the landscape moving into the future. This utilization of technology has been a valuable asset to the arboretum’s many horticultural and environmental projects. Join Joy as she discusses the power of modern mapping in response to the changing landscape.

Joy Arden manages the mapping projects and databases as Bayard Cutting Arboretum’s Geographic Information System (GIS) Specialist. She spent the past seven years understanding and improving the arboretum’s extensive tree collection. Joy is an environmental advocate with an M.S. in Sustainability Management and a concentration in GIS technologies from The New School. Her background with local environmental groups such as Sustainable Long Island, Long Island Sustainable Winegrowing, and the Holly Society of America has been the foundation of her passion to help build resilient landscapes.
