DescriptionImagine searching the web to create a map to your house. You could use one of the many Internet mapping sites like MapBlast or MapQuest to create such a map. But maybe you wish to get a map of trails for the Grand Canyon. The National Park Service web site could serve that need. Or you may wish to get a map to show you the way from the Orlando Airport to Disney World. Again the web will come to the call. Generally, the web delivery of maps may simply involve the printing a graphics file. But in some cases, you create the map specific to your need by suggesting what elements are shown, at what scale and for your particular interest. The interactive element of delivering maps and data specific to a recreation and tourism theme will be illustrated in this paper. With a computer software program called ArcIMS, one can create maps on the web. Using the Westfield River Watershed Interactive Atlas, tourism data and maps can be delivered to a surfing population.
