Spanning 2,000 acres and encompassing the Georgetown Waterfront, Meridian Hill Park, and the Thompson Boathouse, Rock Creek Park has been attracting visitors nationwide for decades. With more than 32 miles of trails, historic sites, and much more, it can be difficult for visitors to tackle getting the most out of their park visit. To help with this challenge, Blue Raster developed the Rock Creek Park Map Viewer for NatureServe. The map acts as a field guide focused on highlighting the natural communities of Rock Creek, and arms park visitors with the knowledge and skills to “read” the natural landscape. Resource management specialists, park rangers, and interpretive staff currently use the site to better manage areas of the park and to generate reports.
