Tourist tracks/walks

Hello fellow geocachers/hikers in Greece!

 

I am wondering if there is already a site where one can upload his/her tracklogs and can download tracklogs created/uploaded by others.

 

If such a site does not exist (for Greece anyway), I would like to put one together. Of course the new site would have many other features as well, mainly Greece specific.

 

This would be a good way of mapping the whole country (I am mostly talking about tourist tracks, not roads for cars).

 

Any thoughts on this subject is much appreciated.

Please post your replies in English as - although I have been living here for almost 2 years - I still can't understand everything in Greek - It's all Greek to me! :o

I checked out the site, and while I like its idea, I find it very poor in content, organization, and options.

 

What I have in mind is similar to it, but extended to the following:

-tracks, wapoints, routes downloadable in various formats

-tracks etc. are organized by and searchable by various properties

-descriptions/photographs for tracks etc.

-when multiple people upload similar tracks, a "master" track is formed

-visitors could rate the tracks etc.

-tracks etc. could be seen visually on a map.

-tracks etc. are not for only hiking, but waterways (rafting, boat trips), motoscross tours, even flight trips (for balloons, RC flights etc.)

-and a lot more :laughing:

-and of course, it would be priarily for Greece.

 

At the moment I am looking for ideas. And a bit later, I might start implementing it if I see there is enough interest/demand for it.
