Don’t Lose Your Way – Crowd Sourcing the Nation’s Lost Paths Astun Technology

As featured on the BBC One Show.

Using an online mapping system developed by Astun, the Ramblers walking charity mobilised thousands of volunteers in a high profile national campaign to find and map over 49,000 miles of historic rights of way before they are lost forever.

In just 6 weeks, over 4000 ‘citizen geographers’ used the online mapping tool to review 154,000 km squares, and found and mapped a staggering 49,138 miles of rights of way that are missing from the definitive maps in England and Wales.
