Announcing the New NPMap Website

Posted on 10 Apr 2012 by Mamata Akella

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:

  1. Building, maintaining, and supporting a web mapping library (which is, strangely enough, called NPMap)
  2. 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.

We hope you enjoy the site, and make sure you subscribe to the RSS feed and follow the team on Twitter to keep up with what we’re working on!
