Geotrail is a Canadian online mapping company that promotes hiking and outdoor education through interactive online tools that help users plan their recreational experience.[1]

History[edit]

Geotrail is headquartered in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and was founded in October 2009.[1] In May 2010, the company launched its web-software with the Royal Botanical Gardens, promoting its 37 kilometre trail network.[2] The first of its kind in Ontario, the program not only displays the trails on interactive maps, contains photos of points of interest on each path, and a search tool to plan a trip based on a number of criteria including length, time, difficulty, but outdoor education programming as well.[3]
