BMT Map

Postby SGT Rock » Tue Dec 22, 2009 3:55 pm

I just started looking at your maps section today - VERY cool. I was wondering if you were working on, or planned to work on a BMT map?

Hey Sarge, is there a preferred .kml file of the BMT? I found one doing a google search, but if you have one in mind, let me know.

That's all I need to add the trail.

Let me know!

As far as I know the only one out there is Mr Parkay's file:

I was looking for a good way to help hikers find BMT trail heads and found your AT map section. I love that! I wish I knew how to make one of those things.

Thanks,

Ok, you now have a google BMT map, with mileages. The elevations are being created as we speak.

You are the MAN. I'm going to recommend to the BMTA they link to this from their Website.

Are you going to include any of the other place marks from that track?

The process isn't setup to handle placemarks, only tracks, at this time. It's something to think about, tho.

Hmm, maybe I'll add that to my todo list.

Sweet. Thanks for that. I just assumed you could do it like you add shelters and such on the AT.
