I've had some thoughts about adding the ability to upload and download walking routes.

Members could upload routes of their favourite walks, in Memory Map or GPX format, perhaps with associated photos and a short description of the walk. The route can then be downloaded by anyone who fancies walking it.

Not sure if this would be part of the main WP site, or hosted here on the forum.

Ideas and opinions welcomed.

How about splitting it into regions and then providing links to the walks that people have done? Same could be done for a photo gallery.

Maybe micro sites dedicated to routes / photos - more work for you though!

I think the idea is good but I've a feeling it would be a lot of work for you for not much return. I always find difficulties with the numerous sites posting walks - incorrect info, poor GPS waypoints etc.

I would think most members could post routes and photo's but how many times would they be used. If they would be useful then I could post loads of routes with supporting photo's especially for the Dales and Peak District. You have enough on at the present time Stuart.
