National Parks Traveler Launches Crowd-Sourced Parkipedia

Press Release

November 22, 2013

Park City —" title="">National Parks Traveler, a website dedicated to daily editorial coverage of the national parks, has launched Parkipedia, which is modeled after Wikipedia, the crowd-sourced online encyclopedia.

Parkipedia was launched along with a redesign of the eight-year-old Traveler’s website. Central to that redesign was creation of a “members area” for readers who, for $9.95 a year, become Traveler members.

As with Wikipedia, entries to Parkipedia can be contributed and edited by all Traveler members. Details on hiking, lodging, dining, activities and supporting photographs on all aspects of national park visits can be contributed by Traveler members.

“Printed guidebooks, sadly, are dinosaurs of sorts in today's digital world,” said Kurt Repanshek, Traveler founder and editor-in-chief, who has authored multiple guidebooks. “The time it takes to research, write, and print them almost makes them obsolete by the time they're published.”

While many printed park guides are researched and written by one or two people, Traveler's Parkipedia guides are collaboratively written by the people who time and again visit their favorite parks and have amassed years of knowledge in the areas of hiking, wildlife, camping, lodging and more.
