USING FORGE MAPS
Forge prides itself on simplicity and accuracy. This means that we put many dedicated hours into ensuring the data is correct and meaningful. The attribution of data is important to us, as well as maintaining it and keeping it up-to-date. We attribute each trail (line) segment and point of interest (POI) with various information that we believe will be useful to any user of the data.
Our maps are designed to be simple and easy to use. This guide explains how to use our online web-maps and how our trail segments and points of interest are justified to help you make sense of them.
