Outline for Interactive Gaviota Coast Map


The following outline is a preliminary concept on how to organize coastal resource information in a web site that is accessible online using desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones.

.

Things to do along and near the Gaviota Coast

The interactive online map will have sections that focus on

  • Existing Access: We will briefly identify and described existing access to and along the coast to support provision of interpretive material.
  • Historical Overview: We will briefly describe the history of the Gaviota Coast from the Chumash through modern times, including a focus on the area’s rich ranching and agricultural legacy and resources.
  • Cultural Resources: We will highlight this areas rich history including Chumash habitation and the remains of at least 7 major villages along this section of coast. We will provide names and brief available historical descriptions of these villages, while respecting the need to maintain privacy.  We will describe remaining historic structures, past oil development and the history of preservation and acquisition activities.  Visitors will be astonished to learn that some of these treasured open spaces were formerly major industrial sites. Information on acquisition and preservation activities will foster understanding of the importance and difficulty of protecting such areas.
  • Recreational Resources: We will provide an overview of existing developed recreational facilities as well as informal recreational trails and access on publicly owned lands.
  • Biological Resources: We will introduce the marine and terrestrial biological sources with more detail provided for each place address in this effort.

The following list includes activities that are available along the Gaviota Coast and within 25 miles of, before and after, this scenic stretch of the California coastline.
