Central Pelion topoguide is a digital field guide for hikers and nature lovers visiting Mt. Pelion, Thessaly, Greece. It includes routes, descriptions and photos for 18 hiking and mountaineering trails for the Central Pelion region, covering the Volos, Makrinitsa, Portaria and Chania area.
The application offers detailed offline maps and an extensive introduction on geography, geology, the nature of the central part of Mt. Pelion area, as well as the rich cultural landscape of some 15 villages.
The app offers also a useful list of POIs with a comprehensive search engine.
The trails list includes easy and moderate hiking trails and long mountain traverses, of a total length of 140 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 detailed hiking maps at a scale of 1: 25,000 for Mt. Pelion, as well as hundreds other hiking maps for Greece (eg. maps of Mt. Olympus, Crete, Zagori, Sifnos, Naxos and other Aegean islands). To build the application and ensuring data accuracy, all paths of Mt. Pelion have been revised during late 2017.
