myHikes - an exercise in mapping

Castle Rock Hike

This project plots the tracks I've collected with myTracks on maps built using OpenLayers. The design of the website itself, using Bootstrap, is part of the project.

At this point the site is up and running with more than 3 years of tracks.

Future work will include:

    • Make it easier to find a desired track- perhaps through the use of an overview map.

    • Create an automated way to add and upload new tracks.

    • Search out and enable alternative topographic base layers that give elevations in feet (for the US) rather than meters.

    • Add summary information such as the number of tracks, total distance and total time.
