This Is New Hampshire

This Is NH logoThe New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services’ crowd-sourcing website, This Is New Hampshire highlights the need for a healthy environment from the perspective of everyday New Hampshire residents and visitors by giving the public a place to share photos that show how they enjoy New Hampshire’s unique environment, why they care about it and what they’re doing to keep it clean. The website uses a Geographic Information System (GIS) application to map the location where the photo was taken, so visitors to the site can scroll across the state and zoom in and out, viewing the map and the photos simultaneously. Photos can be uploaded quickly from a desktop computer, mobile device or tablet.

There’s not much in our lives that is not touched by the environment, and strengthened when that environment is protected. Love the mountains, trails, lakes and rivers? Snap a photo when you’re hiking, camping, swimming or just relaxing. Take part in roadside litter pickup or beach cleanups every year? Share a photo of volunteers in action. Once you’ve submitted a photo, be sure to click on the social media icons to share, using #ThisIsNH.

NHDES intends to maintain this website as a visual, environmental directory of New Hampshire and a place to which residents and visitors may continue to contribute. Let’s put New Hampshire’s environment on the map!
