DAYTON — The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) is excited to release the web-based interactive Recreational Asset Map.
This interactive Recreational Asset Map, available at http://tinyurl.com/j9l53m4, features many of our Region’s recreational assets and their amenities in an 8-county Region including: Butler, Clark, Darke, Greene, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Warren counties.
Each asset featured contains information such as its name, address, website link, and available amenities. Using a desktop computer or mobile devices, such as tablets and smart phones, users can navigate around the Region, zoom in and out, and click on an asset to view the information. Users are encouraged to zoom to their location, by clicking on the “My Location” tool, and search for different amenities such as playgrounds, museums, or historic sites, by using “Filter by Activities” or “Find” tool.
The Recreational Asset Map was developed in partnership with the Southwest Ohio GIS Users Group (SWOGIS) and the Miami Conservancy District (MCD). The data was compiled from many different sources, including MVRPC’s 2015 Open Space Inventory, the Miami Conservancy District, and many other organizations that provided information.
MVRPC’s Recreational Asset Map is a continuation of the agency’s on-going efforts to share data and information using the latest Geographic Information Systems (GIS) web technologies. It will be updated periodically to enhance its performance and search features or to add to the expanding list of recreational opportunities in the Region.
