Making a date

The New Jersey calendar of events at local, state and federal parks gives information on events at any government-owned park in the state, regardless of the jurisdiction the park falls under. The information is integrated with the New Jersey geographic information systems database, so users get a map showing them how to get to the event, along with information on the event itself.

When the calendar appears on the screen, information for events that correspond to the park site the user is viewing is the first thing to come up. Someone on the Monmouth County Park site, for example, would first see Monmouth County Park events. Once the calendar is up, the user can find information about events in other jurisdictions and localities.

A jurisdiction participates by adding a link on its Web site to the shared calendar. Jurisdictions can add, delete and edit event information by using a simple online application, without having to go through a central administrative office.
