Visualizing and Tagging Trail Experiences

Public spaces are changing in importance for people as they seek new opportunities to use protected areas for outdoor recreation. Within these spaces, constructed features including trails, encourage visitors to move throughout and use the landscape in particular ways. In designing these spaces, public land managers and landscape architects play a key role in shaping the kinds of activities and relationships to the environment are encouraged or discouraged. In this paper, we examine trail user and maintainer perceptions of the kinds of activities people engage in on trails. This pilot paper shares analysis tools and interactive modes for communicating survey results. We create a domain-specific sentiment tagging lexicon for classifying trail activities and experiences. Finally, we develop an interactive digital dashboard to explore possibilities for new forms of public and planner engagement with protected areas and trails through virtual data products.
