Geopark Way on Your Phone

Each of the 17 sections of the Geopark Way now has a dedicated app available for smart-phones and tablets.

Each app has a map of the relevant section overlain on an interactive geology map. Using GPS you get your position and a feed of data about the geology and other information as you walk. ‘Other information’ includes photos of the walk with directional guidance, 3D cross-sections, and interpretations of past environments.

For Android devices you can install them on your phone/tablet from the Google Play store. For Apple devices install them from the Apple App Store. To quickly locate them, just enter ‘geopark’ into the Search facility. The apps for 3 of the sections are free, the rest have a charge of around £1. All money raised will be gifted to the Trust, so even if you don’t own a suitable type of phone, please encourage others who have to install them! And also give feedback (hopefully positive) to produce a high star rating – especially important to encourage people to install them when they are paid for.
