Elafonisos topoGuide is a digital field guide for hiking and tourism in Elafonisos Island. It includes routes, descriptions and photos for 6 hiking trails and 3 MTB rides. Each trail has an elevation profile, a statistic analysis, a detailed description, several photos and a POIs list.
The application offers detailed off-line maps and an extensive introduction on geography, geology, the most important settlements and monuments, and the nature of Elafonisos Island. The app offers also a useful list of POIs (all island's accommodations are included) with a comprehensive search engine.
In the field, the application identifies the nearest route and make active navigation to it and then along it, with continuous messages to the user, while pops-up photos on every interesting or important terrain feature close to his position. If the hiker position is more than 20 meters far from the trail, the application warns him and suggests how to go back.
The cartographic company AnaDigit, creator of the application, has issued hundreds of hiking maps for Greece (eg. maps of Santorini, Crete, Mt. Olympus, Zagori, Sifnos, Naxos and other Aegean islands). To build the application and ensuring data accuracy, all tracks and cartographic information have been recorded during June 2016.
