To continue encouraging Missourians to enjoy outdoor activities, while also promoting the stewardship of the land, the Missouri Department of Conservation needed a way to make information about the state’s conservation areas readily available to the public.
Using ArcGIS® Runtime SDKs, Timmons Group developed a public-facing mobile application that pulls in data from ArcGIS Online basemaps to provide information about the more than 1,000 conservation areas in the state. MO Outdoors allows users to quickly and easily find outdoor activities based on their selected filters. The mobile application provides information on points of interest and activities, such as nature centers, camping sites, hiking trails, fishing areas, and shooting ranges. Users can now easily get regulatory and hunting and fishing information, hours of operation, and parking details right from their mobile device. The app allows them to designate their frequently accessed locations as favorites and to download maps for offline use.
