ArcGIS Online Atlas: Great Smoky Mountains N.P.

An online “Atlas of Great Smoky Mountains N.P.” I made for my final project in IS 590, GeoWeb technologies:
Environmental layers for Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Includes Environmental Protection Agency Level 4 Ecological Regions, 12 digit hydrologic unit watershed boundaries, temperature variances, trails, and forest threats (North Carolina only). Also includes waypoints for Appalachian balds (grassy areas at elevation)
There is an online map viewer where I added a DLIA logo:

HUC 12 watershed boundaries and interface to add layers.

I’m interested in adding it to the DLIA site to provide something fun and interactive for site visitors to play around with.
If I can figure out how to host KML versions of the species distribution models, it could also be useful for Park Service personnel as a quick reference that also has limited GIS capability.  There are also applications for biodiversity science and cartographic education.
