The Nature Park Our is situated in the north-eastern part of the Luxembourgish Ardennes next to the border triangle between Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg. The border region along the river Our is an ideal holiday destination for all fans of hiking, nature and culture. The Nature Park offers an impressive scenic diversity on a very limited surface. Its landscape is characterized by the vast plateaus and by the narrow, romantic valleys trenched in the slate rock by the rivers Clerve and Our and their affluents.

"Natural Parks of Italy" is built with the "ItacaMap for Android", a programming framework that enables Java developers to build rich and high performance GIS applications for Android smartphones and tablets.
ItacaMap is basically composed of a custom WMS/WFS server (OGC WMS 1.1.1 compliant) and a number of client libraries and application for different platforms (e.g.: Android, Silverlight, HTML5, Windows 8, etc.).

The single favorite thing to do in our parks is hike a trail so we've included that too. Find a trail near you, look it up by location, difficulty or type. Detailed trail maps are not currently included. Many Arkansas State Parks are in very rural areas with limited cell phone coverage. If you plan to hike a trail you can pick up detailed maps at our park visitor centers or download them from our website before leaving home. We have something for everyone.

Sighting hotspots are localities were recurring observations of a given animal or group of animals are made over a period of time. These sighting hotspots are ideal for self-drive tourist, which would like to plan their daily trips for the ultimate sightings experience. Planning your game viewing trips using these sighting hotspots would enable you to find you own wildlife sightings and enjoy your own moments in nature.
Because of the dynamics in nature, some animals (especially predators) protect their home range boundaries to secure food, and tend to move or stay for long periods within these boundaries. When the centres of these home ranges are found close to tourist routes, sightings of a given animal or group of animals are often made. Currently many of sightings are reported in public feeds, which are used to compile these sighting hotspot maps.
Sighting hotspots (distribution maps) are an example of how scientist would use observation data, but having this data in the public domain for some animals may pose a potential threat to conservation. We consider the public posting of lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah and wild dog sightings as an equal threat to the conservation effort (similar than posting sightings of rhino onto public feeds) and therefore, users of this app are encouraged only to post information of birds into the public domain, as this information have significant scientific value and less conservation risk. As alternative we created a personal sightings checklist and private sightings group that is for your own use and can be safely used to record your wildlife sightings. You can use these on a daily base to record sightings either to help you to remain focused on wildlife sighting, or to create a personal daily sightings list (record each animal only once a day), or to keep the family or kids engaged in wildlife spotting.
1. Sighting hot spot maps (for trip planning),
2. Create a family (private) sightings group,
3. Sort sightings chronologically or by distance from you,
4. Field notes (snippets of interesting info are awarded for every sighting you are recording),
5. No log in or phone numbers required, no advertisements.
