GIS Team Creates Interactive Paddle Map Application

Working in tandem with Riverkeeper and our Commission’s Parks Department, the MERI GIS team has developed an interactive web mapping application that details a boating trail  along the Hackensack River within our district. The map application was created with ArcGIS Online services and includes the main path, secondary paddling trails, and seventeen points of interest along the river. These points include important natural, cultural, and historical features that gives paddlers a glimpse of the area’s history while they enjoy their excursion. The public can access this map service on their home desktops or on their mobile devices. The seventeen markers along the river have corresponding pictures and information attached to supplement the map. Paddlers can access the Paddle Map web application through the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission ArcGIS Online Portal:
