GIS Mapping: Using Technology to Save the Lives of Dogs and Cats

Tuesday, March 17
10:00AM - 11:00AM

Trinity Hall
311 E 5th


In this ASPCA working group featuring local adoptable dogs, attendees will learn how Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping technology and its applications – used successfully in analyzing trends like urban crime – can play a critical role in addressing pet homelessness and reducing euthanasia rates. You will leave the session with a better understanding of the animal homelessness issue and ways in which GIS mapping technology can make a big impact in life-saving efforts.
