City of Newport News Awarded for Online Maps

Two online maps designed by the City of Newport News’ Information Technology/GIS department won an award at the Commonwealth of Virginia Innovative Technology Symposium held Sept. 4–5 in Richmond.

The City of Newport News’ interactive Bike Trails map and an interactive map designed for the City’s Toast the Coast: Beer, Wine & Shine Trail won an award for “Best Citizen Portal.”

The winning map projects were selected by judges for their “functionality, attractiveness, efficiency and ease of use” as online portals. Both maps were designed and created by GIS staff with input and direction from Newport News Tourism.
