GPS Trail Data Acquisition

Many of the trails on our maps have been up-dated using GPS data acquisition. We do this with a survey-quality GPS (Global Positioning System) which takes an electronic breadcrumb trail as we hike or bike the trails (our favorite part of map making!).

Once we're back in the office, we upload the file into our computer.

To date, of the more than four thousand kilometres of trails shown on our maps, we've collected GPS data on approximately three-quarters of them.

If you have any comments or suggestions, or have a good-quality GPS and would like to help us with GPSing the trails (mainly, it's the longer, more remote trails that still need GPSing), please e-mail us at maps@gemtrek.com
