Maps are essential for visualizing spatial relationships and are very useful as static 2D images of 1 concept or theme. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) software can be used to create interactive maps. Interactive maps allow a user to compare, contrast multiple types of related information which would be difficult to display and analyze in a traditional static map. They allow more complex information to be shared and discussed.

Interactive maps can provide valuable information for discussion around the merits and drawbacks of trail building (specifically a set a trails called the Mad Rabbit project – https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/mbr/news-events/?cid=FSEPRD568683) into the Routt National Forest in NW Colorado.
