I just watched the demo and I am very impressed. I love the features and I certainly would buy the software if it covered the area where I usually hike, i.e. Southwestern B.C. Are there any plans to produce a B.C. version?

Grey Owl,
Yes, I have started to build the maps in the Greater Van area but trail data is a big struggle. The BC government makes it challenging to get accurate data out of the. With that said, I may have found the 'Right Guy' at long last and I'm hoping he can cut through all the red tape.

Thanks for the update. Good luck with cutting through the red tape which can be daunting indeed!

A friend of mine owns a company that has developed a very similar product. They are based in the Vancouver area. As I understand it, their products are more like virtual guidebooks and have a strong emphasis on photographic content (panoramic shots) and fine mapping/narrative detail. I've seen their product in action and it's really cool. I think it's much cheaper as well.

xenduro,
Mapitfirst will have a Scrambles Layer available by the spring. We're just working out the download details.

The web apges (not yet proofed) looks like this)
http://www.mapitfirst.ca/default.asp?id=276

These guys have covered all of Kanes routes and then some. I have placed the links on the appropriate mountain tops so it's easy to navigate around.

If you have a copy of Mapitfirst, I can send you a "Beta" version of the overlay.

Cedarwoman, What's the name of your frineds company. I'd be interested in see what it does.

Sorry, it's a Windows based product. With that said, we have several customers using it on a Mac in 'Parallel' mode.

My friend's website is http://www.virtualoutdooradventures.com/ , and he has a video demonstration of his first product at http://www.virtualoutdooradventures....o_M/index.html

The first product is an interactive guide to the Kettle Valley Railway, and there is a second title scheduled for early spring (Stanley Park & Vancouver Seawall). I understand that their product is capable of running on a PC, Mac or over the internet. A cut down version of the Stanley park product can be previewed at www.VirtualStanley.com

I'll point my friend to this forum. He'll be able to add more details.
