The North Dakota State Parks & Recreation Department's goal is to increase awareness of state parks and recreation facilities, promote access and convenience for people to find places to be physically active, and encourage outdoor recreation. Information displayed within the Recreation Asset Viewer includes parks, trails, park amenities, park facilities, campgrounds, recreation amenities and photos. Users can toggle between a variety of backgrounds (street, aerials, and terrain), as well as use tools such as zoom, measure, drawing, and print to PDF. A custom search is programmed into the application. For example, users could search for all the campsites that provide specific utilities and types.
This viewer is a planning asset to the Department that helps us to improve our asset management and make data-driven decisions with real-time data. Development of the viewer will continue into the future to enrich the geo-located park assets.
