Santorini topoguide is a digital field guide for hiking in Santorini Island. It includes routes, descriptions and photos for 16 hiking trails. Each trail has an elevation profile, a statistic analysis, a detailed description, several photos and a POIs list.
The application offers detailed offline maps and an extensive introduction on geography, geology, the most important settlements and monuments, the two famous archaeological sites, Akrotiri and Ancient Thera, and the nature of Santorini Island. The app offers also a useful list of POIs with a comprehensive search engine.
The trails list includes easy and moderate hiking trails of a total length of 60 km. All routes of the recently signposted hiking network of Santorini are covered.
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 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 again during April 2016.
