Explorador is a modern, mobile web friendly platform for exploring green spaces and parks around our region. The intuitive sliding menu makes it easy to find parks grouped by location or activity categories. Our Esri powered map view offers an interactive way to see clusters of green spaces near and far. The list view shows the same results in a ranking based on our top secret research and algorithms. Explorador's database uses web-scale technology with fuzzy logic to group similar parks based on all they have to offer.
Explorador helps visitors, tourists, even longtime Haligonians explore the beautiful green spaces and parks HRM has to offer. Many of the parks have a number of features that may be known only to frequent visitors. The grouping, based on fuzzy logic, provides a set of commonly occurring features such as sports facilities and recreation. For example, information such as availability of baseball diamonds or trails is taken into account. This is further organized by parameters such as the length of trails or proximity to water, etc. This increases exposure to the parks and their features available within HRM. Ultimately, the App users are provided with a convenient web front end to interact with this data by selecting park features and regions.
