NOAA, NASA finalists in web design competition

Don't be a cog in the machine

NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are among the five nominees for the 2014 Webby Awards for government websites. NOAA was nominated for Climate.gov, while NASA was nominated for its main site.

NOAA’s site includes news about weather trends, interactive maps and learning resources like a “Teaching Climate Literacy Webinar.

“Our goals are to promote public understanding of climate science and climate-related events, to make our data products and services easy to access and use, to provide climate-related support to the private sector and the Nation’s economy, and to serve people making climate-related decisions with tools and resources that help them answer specific questions,” its site said.

The awards are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.

NASA won the 2012 award for best government site and was a 2013 honoree.

Three non-federal sites are also nominated in the government category: New York City’s redesigned nyc.gov; a site promoting adoption in Wales; and Sweden’s official site.
