Giona topoguide is a digital field guide for hikers and nature lovers. It includes routes, descriptions and photos for 23 hiking trails on the mountain of Giona.
Mount Giona (2508 m) is one of the most difficult and inaccessible mountainous areas of Greece, famous for hosting the highest cliffs in Greece.
The application offers detailed offline maps and an extensive introduction on geography, the history and the paths of Mount Giona, including a large chapter on the mountain's nature.
The app offers also a useful list of POIs with a comprehensive search engine.
The trails list includes easy and moderate hiking trails, as well as 3 very difficult, challenging mountaineering routes, of a total length of 150 km.
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 Menalon Trail, Mt. Olympus, Crete, Zagori, Sifnos, Naxos and other Aegean islands). To build the application and ensure data accuracy, all paths of Mt Giona have been revised during Fall 2018.
