Interactive tours via IPhone and android apps via GPS waypoints. This may be to large a data set for one single application, but could be an open sourced framework app that pulls in detailed base maps for each park or venue.

Interactive content could allow for users to post comments and photos about specific way points or parks. This data could be linked back to web sites with there own interactive maps.

Example: Wildlife refuge tours Forest Park maps for runs or trail guides Springwater Trail bike guide Oregon Zoo Interactive map and tour

Similar input received from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability: Locate parks and other public green space, including details about specific trails and access points as well as information about native plants, animals, etc and nature spots on the trails like the Audubon Society and the World Forestry Center. Could also include things like community gardens, farmers markets, green streets, etc.

I believe the dataset could be minimized through hybridization of an application that uses 3G/4G/WiFi to access data from the web via AJAX/Javascript or Push technology.
