The Ingleborough Geological Trails app guides walkers along the trails, highlighting a total of 60 key points of interest along the way. Each complemented with wonderful photos and diagrams.
The offline mapping is unique, combining Ordnance Survey Open Data with the British Geological Survey’s bedrock data to provide a visually stimulating and informative map layer. The map legend and additional timeline further help interpret the landscape below your feet.
This app is a fantastic example of the mapping in our native app software. Online mapping is provided by Google Maps (satellite and street view), but only works when you have wifi or mobile network*.
In order to help app users understand the geology below their feet, and enjoy tailored in-app offline mapping we used Ordnance Survey Open Data and merged it with the British Geological Survey bedrock layer to create a visually stunning and useful map, with multiple zoom layers. A map key is available to help interpret the different colours across the area.
“From the initial contact through to the completion of the Stories in Stone project, the team at AT have provided a very professional service, always willing to answer technical queries, and to offer helpful advice. I would have no hesitation in using them again, and in recommending them to other organisations thinking of developing similar projects.”
