Notes on the map and the table

The track of the E8 is based on data from the website Waymarkedtrails .
The most recent version of the route can be seen on Waymarkedtrails (WT) and Openstreetmap (OSM). (Date last update on this website)
Ireland WT OSM (12-28-2017)
Great-Britain WT OSM (12-27-2017)
Netherlands WT OSM (1-1-2018)
Germany WT OSM (1-1-2018)
Austria WT OSM (1-1-2018)
Slovakia WT OSM (12-28-2017)
Poland WT OSM (12-28-2017)
On Openstreetmap you can adjust any errors in the route yourself. Waymarkedtrails is based on Openstreetmap.
Heights have been added to Waymarkedtrails tracks using the website gpsvisualizer.com.

The exact locations of 'Towns' are based on the locations Google Maps gives. Usually this is somewhere in the center of the town.

The distances in the table and on the map are an approximation!! This is because the actual routes from the E8 to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the E8 is the shortest distance to the E8 in a direct line.

The distances between two POIs (point 1 and point 2) are calculated as follows
Total distance = Distance point 1 to nearest point on the E8 + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the E8 + Distance between the two nearest points on the E8

If points 1 and 2 are close to the E8, the calculated distance is usually a good approximation.
If one of the two points is situated further from E8, the actual distance may differ (significantly) from the calculated distance.

It is recommended to check the route from a starting point to the E8 and from the E8 to the end of a stage! This may e.g. by zooming in on the map and checking for a path or road from the starting point to the E8 and from the E8 to the end point.

The track of the E8 is from different sources and may include errors. Also, the recorded POIs may include errors! It is recommended to check the track and points before walking the path!
