For any other outdoor-enthusiasts out there who own a GPS, why not put all those tracks you've recorded of local trails to use! I've been mapping out trails in Nanaimo for about a year now, and find it pretty cool to be able to collaborate all the road, trail, and other data on one map. So far parts of Linley Valley, Planta, Neck Point, upper Glen Oaks,and Westwood have been mapped out by myself, and I encourage you to do the same.

Anyway, this is the site:, give it a try if you have some GPS Traces saved from a recent hike or trip. If you want, let us know here on the forums what you did.
Happy Mapping!
