Innovate! Inc. (Innovate) is proud to announce the award of the Trust for Public Land's (TPL) ParkServe® contract. Since 1972, the TPL has helped save land for people to enjoy, from neighborhood parks to national parks. Their mission is to create parks and protect land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come. Every park, playground, and public space TPL creates is an open invitation to explore, wonder, discover, and play. Today, millions of Americans live within a 10-minute walk of a park or natural area we helped create, and countless more visit every year. The TPL's ParkServe® mapping application is a critical tool used by a wide range of stakeholders – from city planners and marketing teams to philanthropists and researchers. It helps millions of users locate nearby parks to enjoy. ParkServe® is visited over 2,000 times per month! It also provides key data to empower other users to advocate for new local parks and help close the gap in park access across the country. With a large volume and variety of users, TPL wanted an update to improve ease of use for ParkServe® users and update the backend code in order to increase the customizability and performance of the tool for future changes. Innovate will build the remainder of the UI/UX web application that interacts with the TPL’s services and provide performance enhancement suggestions. Innovate is proud to work with TPL and continue our 19 years of support for environmental missions serving organizations such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), United States Geological Survey (USGS), US Department of Agriculture (USDA), US Department of Interior (DOI), and the Arbor Day Foundation. Innovate has also previously provided GIS capabilities for non-profit organizations, such as the World Wildlife Fund, Chesapeake Bay Trust, and Catholic Relief Services. We are particularly excited to support TPL's mission, as Innovate is also a “green” company, reducing company carbon emissions through our entirely remote staff and sponsoring the Global Cooling Network, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to preserving our nation’s forests and the environment.
