iMap Training for Survey Trails - Shared screen with speaker view
Good Morning, Kristine Uribe Genesee Valley Greenway, never used app and wasn't on Monday call :)
Joan Schumaker - President of the Friends of the Genesee Valley Greenway
Hi, Dolores and Brian Perkins here. Probably will do a trail in Hi Tor somewhere.
Selma Rosenthal, trails in Madison County
Hi all, Drew Starkey - Wayne Soil & Water Conservation District. Have some experience with the app & planning on trails in Lyons & Auburn
Remember to retrieve iMap lists for current projects you are part of.
Who determines which species that are on the species list?
Drew: great question. The long list of species that you can track in iMap is determined by local experts in collaboration with NYNHP staff. The long list includes invasive species that are state regulated, as long as species being tracked to evaluate their invasive tendencies.
The species for this project were selected by Hilary - focusing on common species for June; less common species for later in the summer. Hilary: anything you want to add?
you just named half the vegetation on the Greenway :)
True - most current version of the app has a solid green background
Thanks, Meg. Yes, we are introducing the species in small chunks for the novice surveyor. I will provide the entire list in an email to the group over the next day or so. This way, we have you do a few in spring, a few in early summer that are flowering and easy to see, and a few in August that are still outif you know your species and are good with the survey, you can do all the species on your trail in one surveywe are hoping to make it easy for peop
people to be a sustained volunteer for this program
any tricks on how to eyeball an acre?
baseball diamond? I will check
three acresThe area required for a baseball field should be 400 feet by 400 feet, an area of approximately three acres. This will allow for Dugouts and bleachers as well as the playing area.
An acre is a bit smaller than a football field (w/o endzones) http://www.wagrown.com/what-does-an-acre-look-like/
Thank you all for the references, that helps!
I need to know how to enable gps on my phone. Joan Schumaker
