With summer in full bloom, spending time outside and enjoying the weather is a necessity. The United States has an expansive National Parks program, dedicating thousands of square miles of natural space to be enjoyed across the country. Esri has put together an interactive National Parks Memories Map, allowing users to share their photos of their favorite parks.
The map view allows us to see which areas of the country have the most popular national parks, and its interactive quality enables us to zoom in on particular areas to see specific users’ photos and memories.
Clicking on individual points on the map brings up a larger picture along with a description of where it was taken and other details to more fully bring the memory to life.
It’s easy for anyone to participate! Just visit Esri’s interactive map and click the blue “Participate” button in the upper right hand corner!
Now get out there, enjoy your summer, and explore some of America’s beautiful natural spaces!
