This three session webinar series is offered by Oregon State University’s Forestry and Natural Resources (FNR) Extension agents Alicia Christiansen (Douglas County) and Norma Kline (Coos & Curry Counties). During this course we will cover commonly available digital mapping applications and how to integrate them into your daily land management activities. This series will be useful for beginning to more advanced users; we will cover the basics and discuss special applications as well. Don’t have a smart phone or tablet? This course might help you decide if a “smart” device would be a useful tool in your woodland toolkit. Don’t have cell service at your woodland property? We will cover applications that allow you to view and interact with digital maps without cell service!
