The work I’ve been doing with other folks on syndication of recreational services and facilities now can be found at recmap.org. This is a follow up on the Missouri mapping project I’ve talked about here (although the work can easily be used elsewhere).
The goal of this approach is two-fold:
- Small towns or parks and recreation departments can easily post a Google map of their facilities.
- Aggregator sites like the Missouri River Water Trails site can periodically poll these sites (subject to approval of the source) and update information relevant to the site.
Of course, we’re always looking for feedback on how to make this system work better. So stop by recmap.org or drop a note here to help or to let me know if you’re using some of the code created here in your own state.
