Virginia’s Stafford County Uses Interactive GeoDecisions Map to Display Parks and Recreation Data

Harrisburg, Pa. Oct 2, 2014 -- GeoDecisions presented an online, interactive tour of the Stafford County, Virginia, park system during the 2014 Virginia Geographic Information System (GIS) Conference in Richmond, Virginia. Developed by GeoDecisions, an information technology (IT) company specializing in geospatial and enterprise GIS solutions, the dynamic application connects the public with an integrated repository of content-rich data on parks, trails, and recreation amenities.

“The parks and recreation map tour is informative and an easy-to-use application,” Stafford County GIS Manager Dave Capaz said. “We were able to consolidate our existing in-house detailed downloadable static maps along with Parks and Recreation/Community Facility photos of each park into an immersive user experience. The interactive base map provides a county perspective of where each park is located in relation to one another. All three ‘pieces’ also are synced together.”

Built on the Esri® ArcGIS Online Story Map Tourâ„ platform, Stafford County’s parks and recreation portal features photos, descriptions, and maps that display parks, trails, and amenities. From water resources to a golf course, gymnastics center, and Civil War site, the public can learn about regional history, family activities, and projects moving forward. The Stafford web site also includes a  video of the Belmont-Ferry Farm Trail filmed by staff with a GoPro camera.

In addition the Stafford County parks and recreation portal, Dave Gilbert, GISP, a senior project manager with GeoDecisions, is working with the Stafford County GIS Office to launch an economic development application with a similar story map interface.
