The National Park Service (NPS) was established by congress in August of 1916, making 2016 the 100th year of the agency. 100 years is a big deal, and a celebration for NPS is only fitting. As big fans of NPS, Continental Mapping is marking the occasion with posters made from staff pictures and stories gathered from staff, including those of a former park ranger who is now Continental Mapping’s facilities security officer (FSO). Please follow Continental Mapping on Facebook and Twitter to take part in a great yearlong celebration.
