Air Atlas Maps
A series of web maps that allow visitors to interact with National Park Service air quality data.
Air Quality in Parks
A simple map that helps visitors navigate to network and park Air Resources Information System (ARIS) web pages.
Blue Ridge Parkway Real-time Road Closures
A road closure map that shows the current open/closure status of the 469 mile Blue Ridge Parkway. The map is updated by Blue Ridge Parkway staff, and reflects the real-time status of all sections of the parkway.
Denali Sled Dogs
This map allows you to:
follow the travels of the Denali sled dogs... In early winter, most reporting points will be along the first fifteen miles of the park road, as the dogs go on short runs to build up their strength, and put in trails for recreational visitors. By mid-winter, you'll start seeing trips extending deeper into the park.
Footsteps of History
This project will eventually map all of the Union and Confederate troop movements that occured during the different Civil War battles around Richmond, Virginia. The primary goal of the map is to make it easy for visitors to Richmond National Battlefield Park find where specific units were during a particular battle.
Network to Freedom
A map that shows the location of Network to Freedom sites across the United States that are open to visitation.
The National Park Service's interactive park maps were recently migrated to the NPMap library. The new maps replace legacy Flash-based maps that did not work on mobile devices.

Parks with Bears
A map of National Parks where one or more bear species have been reported.
Plan Your Visit
