We are excited to announce one of our recent projects – the Michigan UP Trails app. Some of our best work is proprietary and internal to our clients. This project gave us the opportunity to visually “show off” some of our mapping and location based technology.
We worked with MI-TRALE (Michigan Trails and Recreation Alliance of Land and the Environment) and WUPPDR (Western Upper Peninsula Planning & Development Region) ((Yes, the project of organizations with acronyms)) to develop this application. We hope it will be a great resource to promote the natural beauty of the UP.
The app focuses on highlighting the following trail types in the UP.
- Power Sports
So far, the much of the Western UP trails have been added to the app with more on the way. To request trails, please contact MI-TRALE.
MI-TRALE is working hard to add descriptions and pictures of the trails. We hope this will be a great tool for planning your trips.
Since cell coverage can be scarce along the best trails, there is offline support. You can download the background map for a specific area you plan to be riding, hiking or paddling. The feature is as resource conscious as possible for your phone.
