Dave Peterson, PLA, Director of Specialized Planning and Carter Marshall, Project Manager, will be presenting Knock It Out of the Park! Using GIS Technology to Meet Your Goaaaaaallls!!! at Colorado Parks and Recreation Association’s annual conference in Breckenridge on October 15th.
Currently there are no nationally accepted standards for measuring quality or public access to athletic field facilities. In Stafford County, VA, we recently helped this public agency use advanced GIS technology to map sports field locations and analyze quality of facilities and public access. The session is designed to address:
- How to use GIS technology to inform future recreation planning for individual agencies
- Tools and concepts to assist agencies in planning and assessment of recreation assets such as sports fields
- Identifying necessary requirements for an agency to develop GIS proficiency and begin to leverage this powerful technology
