Swiss Hiking Trails in 3D

You can't beat hiking in the Swiss Alps. And if you can't beat it then why not join in with this new Swiss National Park Hiking Trails Map. The application allows you to search and find hiking trails in the Swiss National Park by level of difficulty, by length of time, and by the severity of the ascents. It then shows you a glorious 3D map of your chosen hiking route.

After deciding on the level of difficulty and selecting your hike you can view the route of your hike on top of a 3D map of the Swiss National Park. The details section in the map sidebar provides information on the elevations and climbs on the route and how long the hike should last. An interactive elevation chart shows you the severity of the ascents all along your chosen route. If you hover over the elevation chart the location is also highlighted on the map itself.

The 'Basemap' option in the map sidebar allows you to switch the basemap layer to a topographic or satellite map.
