TrailMapper is a "wiki-style" trails database. This means that the content is contributed by folks like you. Anyone with trail information can contribute, either by editing existing trail data or uploading an entirely new trail. If you aren't in the mood to share, just browse, learning new things about trails you already know, and learning about trails you never knew were there.

Conversion to Google Maps got off to a slow start but things have improved. Most functionality has been restored. The old "checkbox toggles" at the top of the screen are gone. Hopefully the flip side is that TrailMapper is easier to use than ever before.

Work has begun on converting from Google Earth (plugin) to Google Maps. Downside? Google Maps will only show 20 or so objects.

Dead! The Google Earth Plugin API ended at the end of 2016, so this explains the lack of any mapping ability with TrailMapper. It should be possible to use Google Maps instead, but it will take a rewrite of much of the TrailMapper code.

A year later, and still no news. TrailMapper continues to slowly build the trails database. There is some possibility of adding support for Google Maps, which may provide compatibilty for mobile devices and platforms that don't support the Google Earth Plugin.

No news, just a "Hi, still here!" post. TrailMapper is still going along, and nothing has broken in a while. Amazing.

We've moved!  Our old webhost (1and1.com) got a little too unfriendly for TrailMapper's tastes, so we are now happily moved in to GoDaddy.com.  Let me know if anything doesn't work right!

Thanks to an observant TrailMapper user, the upload system works better than ever. Certain "flavors" of KML data were being plotted as a single point, regardless of whether the data was a trail, route or waypoint. Happily, this is now fixed!

Rogue headers were responsible for Internet Explorer showing a "crashed layout". Things are looking up. In fact, to fix the problem, code was removed, rather than added. Refreshing.
