News from Outdooractive: the Web App ‘Map’

The new module Web App ‘Map’ is now available free-of-charge to all customers who already use web frontends such as Regio or Destination. Now you have the opportunity to give your guests an ‘empty’ map with which they can get their initial bearings and filter in content as desired before taking this outline to the Route Planner stage.

The new Web App Map will present guests with a clearer map that is less cluttered with superfluous content. This is unlike, for example, the Route Finder where suggested routes, huts, POIs, etc. are already displayed. The idea behind the Web App ‘Map’ is to provide guests with a plain map on which they can orientate themselves and search for places and destinations which they can then view in a more impartial manner. All customers who use a web frontend can integrate the web app ‘Map’ free-of-charge. Have a look at the case study, to see how the integration can look.
