Field Guide for animal and plants in Montana. A collaboration between the Natural Heritage Program and Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
Montana Natural Heritage Program and FWP
Modified and enhanced an older field guide application to make it easier for people to learn about the Plants and Animals in Montana. This Field Guide has links into and from many applications for both the NHP and FWP websites. Quite a few state biologists and botonists are continually updating the data that feeds this website.
This site was created with ASP.NET and C#, using Master Templates and Core Components. The plan is to create two front ends: one designed primarily for kids and the more detailed version for the general public.
Within hours of releasing this site to the public, we already were receiving kudos from users across the state.
