The Missouri Mapping Project is a project I’m working on with several agencies and folks. Each of these groups have unique goals, but I’m calling the work I’m doing here as the Missouri Mapping Project simply so I can both gather my thoughts and also solicit feedback on how to make this all work better.
The idea behind the project is simple: There are many federal, state and local government agencies and municipalities that have outdoor recreational opportunities for the Missouri public. Wouldn’t it be great if the information about these opportunities was easily available to the public in a common format? Furthermore, wouldn’t it be great if non-profit and even commercial interests could integrate their information with this public land information? Then a person planning a kayak trip on the Missouri River could plan where they would eat, sleep or rest on the trip.
