Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley unveiled a new state website on March 4, representing a major overhaul for the portal. The new site, developed by the Department of Information and Technology (DoIT) along with e-government contractor NIC Maryland, features 175 online services, context-driven social media and GIS-based tools aimed at engaging citizens with content that's most relevant to them.
The site's design is responsive, meaning it will detect the device being used to access it, and adjust the way content displays accordingly. Responsive design, gaining ground in the Web design industry, keeps smartphone and tablet users from having to scroll to access content laid out with full-screen viewing in mind.
