Experience level: 
Beginner

For more than 20 years, GreenInfo Network has developed critical datasets about the public landscape of California and provided map-based communications solutions to a long list of nonprofit organizations working on a wide range of environmental and social issues. And we've built a stable business and strong staff in the process. We maintain California's Protected Areas Database, Conservation easements Database, and as of late 2016 the California School Campus Database. From spatial datasets to printed maps to custom web applications, we work to help organizations develop geographic data and transform it into clear, compelling messages using various media, on various timelines, sticking to various budgets. Join GreenInfo staff to discuss how a well-designed map can boost the effectiveness of an organization's mission, message, or campaign. We'll share how we work in partnership with our clients to develop cartographic communication tools that deliver the right message to the right audience at the right time with efficiency and elegance, and we'll give you a behind-the-scenes tour of our mapping/development process. We'll also talk about some of our most successful client partnerships and discuss the positive changes our work has helped bring about.
