Menalon Trail topoGuide is a digital field guide for the 75 km-long Menalon Trail mountain route, situated in Arcadia, the heart of Peloponnese, Greece.
Menalon Trail is the first Greek mountain route awarded by the European certification of Leading Quality Trails given by the European Ramblers Association (ERA).
Menalon Trail topoGuide provides detailed offline maps, accurate tracks, rich descriptions and dozens of photos for each one of the 8 daily sections.
Beside the 8 sections of the Menalon Trail, the app offers 9 more trails in the surrounding area.
Each Adventure has a description, photos and a POIs list. The application offers also an extensive introduction on the geography, geology and nature of the surrounding region of Gortynia, as well as a useful list of POIs with a comprehensive search engine.
When in the field, the app identifies the nearest section and provides active navigation on the path, displaying messages and warnings on every junction or other important location. On each Point of Interest, photos and texts pop-up on the map. If the hiker gets off-trail, the app indicates the shorter way to get back safely.
The developer, AnaDigit, has been developing cartographic products for over 20 years and has been involved in the creation of Menalon Trail as the scientific advisor for route optimisation and the developer of all related products, such as the website and the printed map.
