bk Cycling route management overview

Well better late then never 😉 I’ll give a small overview of my current progress in my cycling website.

So the real purpose is to have all available cycling network points charted onto a Google maps interface. This with the extra ability to create your own routes offline and share them with other people.

What’s currently available

  • I charted a small portion of available network points at the north of Mechelen
  • I added a bunch of network points from around Brugge
  • You can select network points that are connected through a route to build up your own cycling route
  • When you composed a route, you can save it and share it through a special designated url
  • You can also, during composition of your route, always clear the last selected network point

What’s currently on track for improvement ( some are up in a land of far far far far away 😉 )

  • Possibility to enter a location and jump to that location on the map
  • Get detailed route GPS information to show ‘nice’ tracks on the Google map
  • Give a clean printable overview page of the Google map and the network points selected
  • Let people add points of interest
  • Suggest a route between two distant network points
  • Update the design
  • Able to upload / download routes through GPX or KML

As you see this project has still some features that need to be added ! But since I switched from an asp.net to a PHP/JavaScript version, things got very easy 🙂 .

But still anybody who wants to help in any way ( programming, design or providing route data ), can always contact me through the contact form here on the blog ( upper right corner ).
