Menalon Trail topoguide is a digital field guide for the 75 km-long Menalon Trail mountain route, situated in Arcadia, the heart of Peloponnese, Greece.
Menalon Trail is the first Greek mountain route awarded by the European certification of Leading Quality Trails given by the European Ramblers Association (ERA).
Menalon Trail topoguide provides detailed offline maps, accurate tracks and rich descriptions for each of the 8 daily sections.
Beside the 8 sections of the Menalon Trail, the app offers 12 more trails in the surrounding area.
The application offers also an extensive introduction on the geography, geology and nature of the surrounding region of Gortynia, as well as a useful list of POIs with a search feature on the map screen.
In the field, the app identifies the nearest adventure, guides you to it and then along it by displaying messages and warnings on every junction or other important location. On each Point of Interest, photos and texts are displayed on the map. If the hiker gets off-trail, the app indicates the shorter way to get back safely.
Also, a navigation feature allows to calculate routes and distances along roads and paths anywhere in the area.
The company Topoguide has been developing cartographic products for over 20 years and has been involved in the creation of Menalon Trail as the scientific advisor for route optimisation and the creator of related products, such as the printed map.
