-<p>Includes the 392 authorized National Park Service units in the United States of America. The data does not include affiliated areas and unauthorized park units. Park units over 100,000 acres (~40,000 hectares) appear as areas, park units under 100,000 acres as points, and linear parks, including rivers, trails, and seashores, as lines. There are a few exceptions to this rule.</p>
-<p>Many parks are comprised of scattered, non-contiguous land parcels. Not all of these are shown, especially in urban areas and the northeastern US. Dots generally indicate the center of the largest parcel or the parcel where the visitor center is located.</p>

+<p>Park names [Name] are shorted versions of the [UnitName] appropriate for general map labeling and were created by Nathaniel Vaughn Kelso. When referring to the park in text or on a more detailed map, use the [UnitName] and not the [Name]. National Parks do not receive a NP trailing type indicator in [Name], while other types of park unit do (NHP, NS, etc).</p>
+<p>Scale ranks do not imply importance of one park over another but can guide which parks should be shown on more and less detailed maps. Scale ranking by Nathaniel Vaughn Kelso.</p>

<p><strong>NOTE:</strong> Natural Earth places Parks and Protected Lands in the &#8220;cultural&#8221; category because, unlike rivers, mountains, and other &#8220;physical&#8221; features, parks are not fixed reference features. Instead they change regularly as new features are designated by governments and can include both natural wonders and sites of cultural (historic) significance.</p>

Park units over 100,000 acres (~40,000 hectares) appear as areas, park units under 100,000 acres as points, and linear parks, including rivers, trails, and seashores, as lines. There are a few exceptions to this rule.</p>

+<p>Park names [Name] are shorted versions of the [UnitName] appropriate for general map labeling and were created by Nathaniel Vaughn Kelso. When referring to the park in text or on a more detailed map, use the [UnitName] and not the [Name]. National Parks do not receive a NP trailing type indicator in [Name], while other types of park unit do (NHP, NS, etc).</p>
+<p>Scale ranks do not imply importance of one park over another but can guide which parks should be shown on more and less detailed maps. Scale ranking by Nathaniel Vaughn Kelso.</p>

<p><strong>NOTE:</strong> Natural Earth places Parks and Protected Lands in the &#8220;cultural&#8221; category because, unlike rivers, mountains, and other &#8220;physical&#8221; features, parks are not fixed reference features. Instead they change regularly as new features are designated by governments and can include both natural wonders and sites of cultural (historic) significance.</p>

-<p>Includes the 392 authorized National Park Service units in the United States of America. The data does not include affiliated areas and unauthorized park units. Park units over 100,000 acres (~40,000 hectares) appear as areas, park units under 100,000 acres as points, and linear parks, including rivers, trails, and seashores, as lines. There are a few exceptions to this rule.</p>
-<p>Many parks are comprised of scattered, non-contiguous land parcels. Not all of these are shown, especially in urban areas and the northeastern US. Dots generally indicate the center of the largest parcel or the parcel where the visitor center is located.</p>
+<p>Data includes the 394 authorized National Park Service units in the United States only. The data does not include affiliated areas and unauthorized park units. We&#8217;d like to include more national parks from around the world, see issues below.</p>

+<p>Park names [Name] are shorted versions of the [UnitName] appropriate for general map labeling and were created by Nathaniel Vaughn Kelso. When referring to the park in text or on a more detailed map, use the [UnitName] and not the [Name]. National Parks do not receive a NP trailing type indicator in [Name], while other types of park unit do (NHP, NS, etc).</p>
+<p>Scale ranks do not imply importance of one park over another but can guide which parks should be shown on more and less detailed maps. Scale ranking by Nathaniel Vaughn Kelso.</p>

<p><strong>NOTE:</strong> Natural Earth places Parks and Protected Lands in the &#8220;cultural&#8221; category because, unlike rivers, mountains, and other &#8220;physical&#8221; features, parks are not fixed reference features. Instead they change regularly as new features are designated by governments and can include both natural wonders and sites of cultural (historic) significance.</p>

There are a few exceptions to this rule.</p>

+<p>Park names [Name] are shorted versions of the [UnitName] appropriate for general map labeling and were created by Nathaniel Vaughn Kelso. When referring to the park in text or on a more detailed map, use the [UnitName] and not the [Name]. National Parks do not receive a NP trailing type indicator in [Name], while other types of park unit do (NHP, NS, etc).</p>
+<p>Scale ranks do not imply importance of one park over another but can guide which parks should be shown on more and less detailed maps. Scale ranking by Nathaniel Vaughn Kelso.</p>

<p><strong>NOTE:</strong> Natural Earth places Parks and Protected Lands in the &#8220;cultural&#8221; category because, unlike rivers, mountains, and other &#8220;physical&#8221; features, parks are not fixed reference features. Instead they change regularly as new features are designated by governments and can include both natural wonders and sites of cultural (historic) significance.</p>
