The enormous coverage in the media shows that “over tourism”, with all its associated problems, is the dominant theme of modern tourism. These increasingly negative trends are forcing those responsible to look for the right strategies and solutions.

Snap it – Smart route planning with imported GPX-Tracks

Until now, creating a route based on a previously recorded GPX track has often been very labor-intensive and time-consuming. The main reasons for this were the deviating geometry data of an imported GPX track from the route and the missing information about the route types (e.g. nature trail, asphalt, path, etc.), which had to be amended and processed when creating the route.

Difficult times ask for action

A few months ago governments and individuals would have never imagined the state that we find ourselves in today. Within weeks, we all eventually realized: we are in this together. This is a crisis across all nations, industries and individuals.
