Civic hacking the National Park Service
Building a national parks directory with the NPS API.
30 Dec 2022
(This post is part of an ongoing series documenting adventures in father-son civic hacking.)
We built a ]national parks directory](https://usa.govfresh.com/pars) using the U.S. National Park Service API. This includes:
- Listing of all national parks
- Individual parks pages
Each park page includes:
- Entrance fees
Data used for this project:
- National parks API (National Parks Service)
- Google Maps
Big kudos to NPS for:
- Maintaining a public aaplication programming interface of the data.
