The design of this site is meant to represent a light, airy feeling — the way you feel when you’re outside enjoying a breath of fresh air, whether it’s walking in a park or playing an aggressive game of soccer.Julie | wisnet.com Team Member
One of the more interesting aspects of the site is the interactive geographical map created with ESRI Arcview GIS software, which provides accurate detail when planning running, walking, and hiking routes. Points of Interest, lakes, and parks can easily be found and a visitor can measure distance to various locations throughout the county map. The map can be printed for visitors to take with them on their travels through Washington County’s many scenic paths!
