The GPS files of the Heysen Trail have been updated to include all re-routes.
Walkers who have previously downloaded the GPS files for their handheld GPS units for use whilst walking the trail should download the new file.
The re-routes were previously presented as separate tracks, all re-routes have now been combined into the main track files (disused parts of the trail are no longer shown.)
The Interactive Maps interface has also been updated.
There is now a:
• GPX file download (contains only the main trail, spur and alternative trails, and campsites/towns)
• KML file download (contains all information as presented in the Interactive Maps interface, but for download and use in the Google Earth interface)
The files have been updated to January 2011 to include all re-routes along the trail (except for a minor re-route over Willochra Creek near Hawker which will be included in the file in late February 2011.)
