The National Center for Preservation Technology and Training announces a new partnership with the Olmsted Center for Landscape Preservation. The two groups are coming together to allow the Olmsted Center to evaluate plant collection management databases for use in national parks. This documentation is important to the preservation of cultural landscapes as living museums.
These databases become powerful tools for park staff. They will be able to inventory and track care of plant collections. Additionally, this technology can enable visitors to create guided mobile tours, identify plants within parks, and even explore different landscapes across the country. Researchers will also benefit from better plant records management by gaining a better understanding of large-scale trends.
NCPTT is proud to be a part of paving the way for the second century of technology inside of the parks. By doing so, we are helping to bring better visitor experiences as well as better global conservation.
