The new Frisco Trails Story Map was featured in a Dec. 30 installment of the city’s “Progress in Motion” video series. The map, which uses the city’s geographic information system technology, highlights the top 10 trails in Frisco. Specifics on several walking loops and a link to the city’s complete Hike and Bike Master Plan are also available.
Chris Shuma, a GIS analyst for the city, said the map came from collaboration between the IT, parks and recreation, and engineering departments. Their goal, he said, was to create an easy-to-use tool for the public to see what walking routes are near them.
“As you scroll through it, it’ll basically drive itself for you,” Shuma said.
Clicks over the trails included in the map reveal their names, length and hyperlinks to the city’s website. Information on public art is also included on the map alongside details on restrooms, benches, drinking fountains, bike repair stations and more.
