The mapping starts

Today I started the process of mapping the official pilgrim trail so we can create a Everytrail Guide. For the untechnical, Everytrail is a phone app that maps the route you walk step by step. We can add photos and points of interest along the way. We can upload that and add audio commentary and lots of extra detail. The public can then download the map and guide information. It’s a great app.

We started at st Joseph’s on Salvado Road in Subiaco, the pilgrim trailhead and headed east. Mapping and taking photos takes a bit longer that we thought, but we got to Claisebrook by lunchtime. The biggest issue is not our leg stamina but the phones battery stamina. Mapping with GPS connection drains the battery fast, two phones lasted nine kms.

 

This first part was a great mix of urban and nature, old and modern, plus lots of coffee opportunities along the way. Particularly like this quote on the Bali memorial in King’s Park.
