Announcing the New NPMap Website
10 Apr 2012 by
The NPMap team is pleased to announce the release of our updated website! We plan to shape this website into a place to find information and resources related to web mapping at the U.S. National Park Service.
Our team focuses on two primary objectives:
- Building, maintaining, and supporting a web mapping library (which is, strangely enough, called NPMap)
- Designing and developing project-specific web maps for the National Park Service and its partners
Given these objectives, we’ve organized the website in such a way that allows us to support our web mapping library, share information about the different projects we’re working on, and highlight the work of our partners – all with the intention of showcasing the work done to preserve and promote the resources protected by the U.S. National Park Service.
Below is a brief description of each section of the website, along with the information you can expect to find at each location:
- Partners: We are proud to collaborate with groups from both within and outside the National Park Service, including a variety of parks, program offices, and universities. Visit this section to learn more about some of the groups we work with.
- Gallery: A section that highlights some of the projects we’ve worked on. If you’re interested in discovering more about how NPMap can be used, this is a great place to start.
- Blog: Here you’ll find posts from the NPMap team on topics related to web mapping technologies, data management, and cartographic design.
- Support: Are you using the NPMap web mapping library? If so, you’ll want to take a look at this section to find technical documentation on everything from getting started with the library to more advanced topics.
- Team: Find out more about the NPMap team, including who we are and what we do.
