As the world continues to utilize the new technologies available, so too does the National Park Service (NPS.) WPI Trail View was created to assist the National Park Service connect people to parks by documenting the hiking trails at Acadia National Park. Trail View creates virtual tours of the trails and houses them on a website that can be accessed through the Acadia National Park website. The website has been expanded to include educational information such as maps, flora, fauna, and a photo gallery of each trail in the park. Trail View offers a way for people who canÂ’t visit the trails to still experience them. The project is meant to raise interest in the National Parks (specifically Acadia) and educate people on the issues important to the NPS.
