The goal is to prepare a local map of the entire Paumanok Path in digital form that can be uploaded to Google Map and/or Open Street Map. Once we have the digital form, it's especially unclear how to add it to Google Map. This would be of benefit for trail promotion and recognition by the public. The Paumanok Path is a federally recognized hiking trail, just like the well known Appalachian Trail. Since there is no one organization involved in promoting the Paumanok Path, Quality Parks has directly requested support from the Town of Southampton, LIGIS, Long Island Greenbelt Trail Conference members, and the Google Maps Platform Technical Support team for help.
With two orders received, we're now taking orders. We will also be working on ways to promote the Paumanok Path on Google Map and or Open Street Map . The trail is currently estimated to be either 125 or 130 or so in length.
Finalized the design and to work with local sponsors to see if we can get 25 T-shirts printed with a sponsor's name on the sleeve.
Quality Parks began working on finding the original logo art work for a T-shirt in July. We reached out to eventually find Karl Beard (of the National Park Service Rivers, Trails & Conservation Assistance Program, who worked with Ray Corwin and others) for copies of the existing Paumanok Path logos. By October, we found two logos. Dai Dayton, FLPG, suggested that the larger logo be used on the back of the T-shirt and the smaller one on the front. Mindy Block suggested the sleeve be used by the sponsor covering the cost of small run T-shirt runs. Quality Parks then contacted Annette DeGiovine-Oliveira, a local graphic artist/designer, who agreed to volunteer her time to work with Quality Parks on creating a first draft concept of the T-shirt. Annette redrew the images as the originals were too pixelated when enlarged, and enhanced the lighthouse, pine cones etc of the larger logo.
