Using the Web-based Sign Planning Tool

The NPS has developed a custom web-based tool for collaborating with partners on sign plans. It is designed to be easy to use, and requires only an internet connection to create, view, and edit your plan from your own computer. To begin, please contact the NPS to discuss your project and gain access to the tool. After your first conversation with NPS staff, this page provides step-by-step instructions on how to log in to the tool and begin placing your signs.
