Spring Hike in Nackareservat - Sunday 20-04-14

Posted by SagharAsadi on 17 April 2014 in English (English)

This is our first hike of 2014, also the very first time that I use OpenStreetMap. What I am planning to do is to design ~20km route for the hike and then overlay our actual route on top of it. Hopefully, it's all possible with this map...

Location: Skogalund, Nacka, Stockholms län, Svealand, Sweden

You can of course do that sort of thing using openstreetmap as a base map, but that's not what OSM is really designed for.

Edits you make to the map are global, visible to & affecting everybody, and as such we tend to only map actual real physical things, and not just things that are only relevant to us personally.

You might get better luck using tools such as gpsies.com's track creator, which uses openstreetmap.
