Open Source Nordic Trail Maps?

Post by Jon44 » Thu Jul 10, 2014 8:12 am

After getting a new generation smart phone, I've been kind of amazed at what you can do with mapping apps available. (Waterproof phones, 128 gb of storage, barometers, and ability to view navigation info on a smart watch all change the game from past clunky systems.) There are open source maps for alpine ski areas (e.g., http://skimap.org/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) and I wondered about how to create something similar for nordic areas?

I'm not a programmer, but as far as I can tell people just set up a website and then users contribute trail maps they create on Google Maps or other standard mapping programs. Anyone have suggestions of how to launch something like that for nordic trails?
