TLA Website Updates
Your Landings Association continues to focus on improving communications and making gathering information as easy as possible for members. In keeping with this goal, we recently tweaked a few areas of our existing website (www.landings.org) and updated the overall look and feel. The new site boasts a more robust search feature, allowing users to filter by date, article title, forms, and more.
A new addition to the website is the social organization section. This area allows island organizations to share information about their organization so that potential members can filter by areas of interest (e.g., education, philanthropy, crafts, etc.) and contact them
regarding membership. To keep the information up-to-date, we will ask for updates each summer around the same time we publish the Addendum to the Residential Directory and in the fall when we begin work on the following year’s Directory.
To submit information on your organization, visit landings.org/forms > Miscellaneous Forms > Clubs and Organizations, or click here. To search for clubs and organizations, visit landings.org/social-clubs > Clubs and Organizations Search.
Back by popular demand is the map section of the site as well as the Marinas live cams. You can use your phone, laptop, or tablet to access the Marinas Live Cams by visiting landings.org/marinas and clicking on Delegal Creek Marina or Landings Harbor Marina (located on the right-hand side of the screen). The camera feed will appear at the top of the page. Click the arrow in the center of the screen to begin the stream. To bookmark the pages for future use, please use the direct paths landings.org/delegal-creek-marina and landings.org/landings-harbor-marina.
It is important to note that the webcams are fixed on specific locations at both Marinas and cannot be moved by your electronic device to view other areas.
To access the interactive map gallery hosted on The Landings Association’s website, visit (landings.org/maps). Just like before, the maps are a Geographic Information Systems (GIS)-based application called geothinQ, which provides an easy-to-use web interface that allows users to visualize, analyze, and interpret spatially referenced data. GeothinQ is powered by Thomas & Hutton, a local firm familiar with life at The Landings. Training videos are available at the top of the page.
Access to the maps is a win-win for the Association and residents alike, giving residents another option for finding out information that previously would have taken a phone call or email. Queries that can be answered by geothinQ are innumerous. Some search examples include: Does the property behind my lot belong to The Landings Association or The Landings Club? Are there water pipes near my property? Is that a fresh or saltwater lagoon? Where are Association-maintained walking paths and trails?
