Pennsylvania DCNR’s website explorepatrails.com has a lot of good information for trails. It allows people to upload gpx files. It doesn’t seem to have all the trails on the NE PA Bicycle and Hiking Map, but I haven’t compared the site to the map very closely yet. The information that they collect in the database is good.
Today I was also looking at the Moorestown Bike Plan at communitywalk.com. This site is more oriented towards people drawing their routes in. Toole Design and Urban Engineers are using this service, which costs $4.95 month.
So, today I was asked if we can develop something like this communitywalk. We actually have developed some custom sites that are database oriented, but these focus on point data only. Now, with the NJ State Bike Map, we will have a project that can utilize greater GIS/Web functionality.
I’m excited about this.
