(ECP operates a nationwide grant program to all US National Parks, which has helped take the service from just a few GIS-enabled parks at the start of the program to over 200 GIS-capable parks today (1999), and growing. Thanks to support from the NPS GIS office in Colorado and a national network of NPS technical coordinators, GIS applications in the parks have exploded in recent years, as the list of papers and online maps below will show. ECP also grants to state parks, and all other types of protected areas and reserves worldwide.
