About the App

Thank you for using this app, I hope it helps you really enjoy your time on track. Think of this as a bushwalking guidebook; you will find lots of general information on how to bushwalk safely (how to prepare, get fit, pack, plan, choose gear, as well as first aid refreshers), there is also detailed information, maps and GPS to help you navigate the track.

I have been a keen bushwalker since I was a teenager and love to encourage others to get out there and enjoy these amazing places, my hope is that this will help you and your friends build a lifelong love for exploring wild places.

Mapping Data
A big thanks to the thousands of volunteers who contribute to the OpenStreetMap project.

Zoom levels 9-13 (City to suburb views) were generated by (using GEE) by processing 12 months of data from the Sentinel, basically, we stacked all images with few clouds and used a weighted average on the brighter set of pixels to generate the final image set.
