Finding Wildlife with Google Maps

National Wildlife Federation: Nature Find

The National Wildlife Federation is using Google Maps to help users find information about outdoor areas, nature parks and events.

The map is one of the most visited pages on the NWF website and it is easy to see why. Nature Find features a very impressive search feature. It is possible to search for outdoor areas or nature events by location, you can set a proximity range to only view events / locations within a certain distance and you can can select to view results from within a very large range of events and site types.

The results of a search are then displayed on a Google Map using categorised map markers, so that you can tell at a glance what type of event / outdoor area each represents. Click on any of the map markers and you will get detailed information and photogrpahs about the location or event
