Overview of NPMap Slide Deck

Posted on 26 Jul 2012 by Nate Irwin

I gave an introductory presentation about NPMap to a group of NPS web authors today, and thought it would be cool to post it to the web so others can take a look.

Here's the link: http://www.nps.gov/npmap/decks/overview-of-npmap/.

The presentation itself is actually written entirely in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It includes some interactive examples of our team's work and a live code editor that you can use to play around with NPMap's config options. It is based off of the Google HTML5 slide template, although we added quite a bit of functionality on top of what was provided in the Google template. We are currently working on open sourcing a handful of our projects, including the NPMap library, and we'll add the slide deck template to that list.

We plan on updating the presentation as we build new web maps and release new versions of our library, so it probably makes sense to consider it a "living document". Enjoy, and please let us know if you have any suggestions to help us improve our communication! You can reach us by email: npmap at nps dot gov.
