Website Upgrade

If you've visited our website in the past few days, you've probably noticed some serious changes.  Hold on to your iPad, because we're not in Kansas anymore.

Over the past 6 months, we've experienced massive growth in the number of users on Plot Hound.  We're now at over 1,500 registered users and tens of thousands of plots.

Although the app had been constantly improving, our website had remained much the same.  It was time to launch a bold new look and feel that communicated our core mission: building simple, beautiful, and powerful tools to help foresters engage with the land.

Here's what we came up with:

We didn't stop there.  If you log in to your account, you'll notice that the interface for cruise management has been re-imagined as well.

Great maps are an essential tool for great forestry.  So we made maps first-class citizens in our new redesign.  We've shrunken headers and sidebars and expanded our maps to take up almost the entire screen - giving you a big, beautiful workspace.

Pro tip: hit the F11 button on your keyboard to go FULL full-screen

The new cruise creation page is all map, all the time

All these upgrades are part of our mission to provide foresters with the best tools available.  Keep your eye out for more improvements - we're not stopping any time soon.
