Network Routing and Metrics
« on: July 16, 2010, 12:17:56 PM »
I'm posting this here because of TF's tool which creates a trail network from a batch of gpx files and because I know others here have an interest in trail networking.  I've taken a network of gpx trail files for my local hiking area (Big Sur) and created a web tool which, given a start and finish trail location/intersection, will give the shortest distance routing and also its metrics (total distance, net elevation gain/loss, and cumulative upward elevation gain).  I suspect I may have re-invented the wheel and would be interested if anyone knows of something similar, so I could check it out and hopefully improve my own tool.

Very cool use of a trail network from TF.  I'm not aware of anyone else doing trail routing.  Maybe some day, in TF, for sure.

Thanks for the post.
