Many Views of PAD-US

April 18, 2017

One of the uses of PAD-US is for explaining public lands and protected areas to very broad audiences.  The Story Maps team at Esri  developed a web application on their platform for Earth Day that features PAD-US, to provide just such a primer.

Story Maps are special web browser templates that let users easily present text, images, and of course interactive maps. The Story Map developed for PAD-US provides an overview of the types of public lands in a series of 15 “pages”, most with an interactive map of PAD-US data plus a paragraph or two of explanatory text and often a photo.  See to access the Story Map.
