The NPS Natural Resource Stewardship and Science Directorate's Air Resources Division (ARD) collaborates with the NPMap team to develop web-map based air quality data delivery products. These products present complex national level data sets through a map interface and are a key component of ARD’s information outreach strategy. In combination with the ARD public webpage, these web maps are intended to communicate air quality conditions, illustrate concerns, and provide data to park staff, researchers, permit applicants, and the public in a clear and accessible way.
The NPMap Team partners with students from Cal State – San Bernardino (CSUSB) to develop a prototype Places of Interest data set. These students are working to create spatially-accurate and standardized Places of Interest for many parks in the National Park Service. Campgrounds, picnic areas, scenic overlooks, and many other points will be displayed for visitor and park use within the soon-to-be developed Places of Interest system.
The NPMap team partners with Colorado State University on research and development for National Park Service web mapping.
