Location based service, Parks, Colorado
With current technology, using location based services has become easier than ever. There are services that can help a person find a home, save money, or even find a bathroom. In Colorado, parks are managed by the park and recreation department of a city, town, county, or by a district. Depending on the city, information on the parks that they service comes in different formats and information varies. Some department have online maps others have a map in a portable document format, and some offer no mapping but, a list of parks. Finding a park with consistent data formats and information can be difficult. Having the information in one place and using a location based service that allows a user to filter through parks by inputting their location and/or amenities could help with finding a park.
