Corfu Trail topoguide is a digital field guide for Corfu Trail, and covers the official route, which is 180 km long and is divided into 12 daily sections, each one plotted accurately on the map and detailed with text, POIs and photos. The application provides active navigation to the hiker along the route.
Corfu Trail is a long route crossing the entire Corfu island, from South to North. The route has been gradually created by friends of the island, after long-term investigation of the old connections, rescued by the development of the road network.
Thanks to the, from the outset, wise planning, which manages to combine large part of the beautiful natural landscapes of Corfu, maneuvering with success within a space with intense and omnipresent human activity, Corfu Trail has become one of the most popular long hiking routes in Greece.
In addition, the drawing of Corfu Trail avoids the steep or tiring passages, composing in that way a route of low intensity and difficulty, despite its long length, both of the daily sections and the whole.
In the field, the app identifies the nearest adventure, guides you to it and then along it by displaying messages and warnings on every junction or other important location. On each Point of Interest, photos and texts are displayed on the map. If the hiker gets off-trail, the app indicates the shorter way to get back safely.
The cartographic company AnaDigit, creator of the application, has issued previously hundreds of detailed hiking maps for Greece (eg. maps of Crete, Zagori, Sifnos, Naxos and other Aegean islands). To build the application and ensure data accuracy, the complete Corfu Trail path has been recorded during February 2019.
