Creating a Mobile Experience for the Explore Natural Communities Website

Judy Teague - Senior Ecologist, Allen Ansellmo - Software Engineer, Erin Jones - Vegetation Ecologist, Dave Hauver - Software Engineer Natureserve, Diane Pavek - Research Coordinator, Ann Gallagher - Science Education Coordinator, Urban Ecology Research Learning Alliance, NPS National Capital Region

With NPS support, NatureServe formed a team including 4 college-  level interns to create a mobile  experience for the Explore Natural Communities website.  With a mobile  device (cell phone, tablet, iPad, etc.) and an internet connection, all users can access a map of the park and track their location along trails, query the map for information about nearby natural communities, use pictures of plants  and animals that help form the natural communities to learn to recognize them in the field, enjoy prebuilt hikes, listen to podcasts, and watch  videos all focused on the natural history and natural communities of Rock Creek  Park. Check it out on your mobile device at: http://explorenaturalcommunities.org/parks-places/rock-creek-park/ mobile-map.
