Trail Mapping for CT Trail Finder with Avenza Maps
Cary Chadwick & Emily Wilson, UConn CLEAR
Connecticut Trail Finder is a free, interactive mapping site designed to help Connecticut residents and visitors find publicly accessible hiking, walking, snowshoeing, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, and paddling trails across the state. It is a critical resource for trail managers, allowing them to provide the public with up-to-date, comprehensive information about their trails through individual trail listings that allow users to view a digital trail map, get essential information, submit trip comments and photos, and connect with other users. But what is the best way to collect trail data these days? This webinar will focus on Avenza Maps, a free mapping solution for iOS and Android devices. The broad features of the app will be demonstrated in the context of trail mapping for managers and trail stewards whose overall goal is to collect information to share broadly with the public through the Connecticut Trail Finder website.
