Web Media

The foundation for digital media is the web, and HFC plays a leadership role in the future of NPS.gov, as well as park and program websites.

NPS.gov is the place in which interpreters begin the conversation with the public about planning a visit, exploring a topic, learning about history, or dicovering science. HFC plays a leadership role in NPS.gov, working as a leading member of the national NPS web team. HFC also uses its website expertise to support park and program websites through planning, design, and development of websites, microsites, park website features, and other web effort.

Web Design Contracts

HFC has Contracting Officer's Representatives (CORs) with web design expertise ready to help you with your next website contract. You can consult with us to determine requirements, or even ask us to help you secure a contractor that can create your designs. We are here to help demystify the contracting process so that you can focus on the website itself.

Microsites

HFC pioneered a type of mobile NPS website that we call "microsites". Microsites are mobile web pages (not full mobile versions of park websites) that can be created, using a template developed at HFC. In many cases, QR codes are placed on signs or other products and those codes link to the microsite. We've helped multiple parks and programs create microsites, either through supplying the template to them or creating the actual microsite itself.

"Memories of Minidoka" Minisite Series

Minidoka Historical Site partnered with HFC to create listening posts at the site. The posts contained audio of interviews with former internees. Then HFC suggested the minisites as a way of allowing those who had partial hearing loss to be able to access audio files on their personal devices and listen to them at higher volumes. These minisites are also useful for anyone who who isn't hearing-impaired, allowing anyone to take the interview audio with them on their device to listen to at their leisure.
