Kefalonia topoguide is a digital field guide for hiking and touring in the Kefalonia Island. It includes routes, descriptions and photos for 23 hiking and mountaineering trails, 3 birdwatching routes, 2 routes for butterfly observation, one floristic trail, 2 geological trips, 2 SUV and a road trip, covering the whole Kefalonia Island. Each Adventure has a description, photos and a POIs list.
The application offers detailed offline maps and an extensive introduction on geography, geology, the ancient defensive system, the history and the nature of Kefalonia Island. The app offers also a useful list of POIs with a comprehensive search engine.
The trails list includes easy walks, easy and moderate hiking trails and long mountain traverses, of a total length of 183 km.
Geological routes include all major features of the impressive geological environment of Kefalonia.
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 hundreds hiking maps for Greece (eg. maps of Crete, Zagori, Sifnos, Naxos and other Aegean islands). To build the application and ensuring data accuracy, all tracks and cartographic information have been recorded again during 2015.
