The latest update on the mobile app offered by the New York Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation will now include interactive maps for trip planning.
“Since its introduction, the Parks Explorer app has been a useful and easy way to plan your next outdoor adventure, and now with this latest release it delivers an elevated visitor experience with interactive mapping tools and improved wayfinding,” said State Parks Commissioner Erik Kulleseid.
Interactive map elements now provide visitors:
- Easier wayfinding: When the user’s mobile device’s location services are turned “on”, visitors can easily follow along with where they are on the map
- The ability to zoom in on and around each map to learn more about the facility
- Information about trails, park features and amenities by simply tapping on a trail or icon
- Trail segment distance
- The ability to change base layers in live maps from satellite view, simple street view or topography.
