Ever wanted to know exactly where you were when using our network of trails?
Well, now you can!
The strata has developed a version of our recreation map that is Geo-referenced. This means that when it’s downloaded to your smartphone (iOS or Android), your exact location can be displayed using your phone’s GPS. Since it uses your phone’s built-in GPS, it doesn’t require cellphone reception – which is important in many interior parts of the island.
The map actually gets installed within an app from Avenza. This app is free, and can be used to download many Geo-referenced maps from their own map store, but since we want to provide our map to our owners, you download the actual Sidney Island map here. The Avenza app provides clear instructions for loading a map like ours that is separately downloaded.
For the app itself, go to the appropriate app store (iOS or Android).
After installing the app, download the Geo-referenced version of our Sidney Island recreation map and install it within the Avenza app following their instructions.
Our Geo-referenced map is available here
You can find more info about the app at the Avenza webite: here
