About the Project:

The new Old Faithful Visitor Education Center opened in Yellowstone National Park in the summer of 2010. BBM Designs collaborated with RLMG to create a custom CMS for managing data and content that displays within the exhibit.

For the Old Faithful Visitor Center, we were tasked with creating a digital sign that would display continuously updated geyser eruption times for 6 geysers, weather information in the park, and general information for visitors including road closures and safety information. To accomplish this task, BBM Designs created a CMS that allows OFVC staff to enter geyser eruption times and other information from their own computers. Through the CMS, staff can control how long information displays on screen and they can schedule messages to display for a period of time then expire at a future date. Information can also be archived to be used a later date. To make updates even easier, weather information is pulled from Google weather so that it can be displayed directly or edited before it is displayed.
