It was enough hard work just finding a useable map of the AT on the internet. I can only imagine how much work you put into bringing it to the public. I'd trade my 1st born to get a footpath download of that nice blue line for my GPS.

Many many thanks for your hard work !

Thanks for the comments Peacemeal!

Actually, I think the ATC has the very same data points in a format that you can download to your gps. That's where this sites data points originate from.

The data points are 5 years old, so you will find some descrepancies.
