About Our Project

We want to develop a free GPS-enabled walking app that offers iconic trials through the wonderful Epping Forest. We hope this will appeal to walkers of all ages and abilities. The key feature would be an offline mapping tool so that walkers can track a walk regardless of whether there is a mobile signal. The app will also contain ‘point of interest’ information to help you get to know Epping Forest and its incredible biodiversity, culture, and heritage.
