AUTHORS: Jason Courter, GISP, New England Geosystems; Mark Creighton, CT Apiary inspector

ABSTRACT: While reading about the sudden peril of bees and what environmental effects could be causing their demise, I became interested in beekeeping and purchased/built two hives of my own. After hearing about how Connecticut only had one official beekeeper, I reached out to see if GIS could possibly help out with such a small staff. The beekeeper needed to track the location of the registered hives and when they were last inspected. In case a hive was found to have diseases or other problems, the GIS could help to find and notify other hive owners nearby. The talk will discuss what data needs to be collected in the field and why the info is needed. The app created is fairly simple and uses AGOL to provide the mapping services needed whether from work station or mobile devices.
