NEW DATA AND MORE: Urban Farms, New Interactive Maps, and Take our Survey!
We want your feedback! Please take our survey:
It has been just over a year since we officially launched our website. We have received some excellent comments since then, but in order to truly evaluate our progress, we have developed a brief survey to gather your feedback about the project. We would love to know who is using the website, if the information we provide is useful and easy to access, and how we could improve the website. Please take 5 minutes to add your perspective: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MarylandFoodSystemMap
We really appreciate your interest in our work and your time providing feedback!
New Maps in Special Projects:
In an effort to make our data and maps more useful to multiple audiences, we have begun creating what we refer to as "single-theme maps" – maps that focus on a single aspect of the food system. Our first map builds on the Nutrition Assistance data that we added earlier this year. Our second map is a pilot effort to develop a "story map" that includes photos and audio associated with points on the map.
Our goal is to provide more of these "single theme" maps to make it easier for users to focus on their topics of interest, while at the same time maintaining all of the data in our main map to demonstrate the multiple aspects of the food system together in one place.
Data Layer Updates:
We have only one data layer update to announce with this newsletter, as we've been busy developing the new interactive maps mentioned above. But it's a good one!
All of these new data layers are defined in the "Glossary" in the "About the Map" section.
