Ramblers Scotland have won the Ordnance Survey GeoVation challenge and will receive £28,000 to develop a Medal Routes app. Rob Burns and Jeannie Cranfield developed the winning idea of a mobile app to add to the existing Medal Routes website.
Ramblers Scotland with their medal routes try to inspire people of all abilities to discover and share walks within their local area. Medal Routes website provides information about a series of bronze, silver and gold level walks.
It is all about making it easy for people to find circular walks of different lengths in both rural and urban environments. The app will enable more people to overcome barriers and engage with the routes. Wherever people are they will have access to the medal routes walks and motivation to walk and map their own routes. The app will use Ordnance Survey data.
