Interesting stats about the growing trend of mobile page views at National Park Service sites nationwide, generated by Michael Liang, Visual Information Specialist in the NPS Northeast Regional Office, Philadelphia, shared by Fort Vancouver's Chief Ranger Greg Shine, from the Facebook #diginterp discussion group:
In 2009, mobile page views accounted for 0.5 percent of the Internet traffic to NPS sites. In 2010, that number quadrupled to 2 percent. The next year, 2011, saw another quadrupling, to 8 percent, and in 2012, 15 percent of all page views at NPS sites come via mobile devices. Definitely a trend to watch!

Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)
This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.
