The elevation data contains minor measurement errors. As a result, possibly more height differences can be seen in the elevation graph than in reality.

The elevation graph does not show the elevations of the start and end points and links to the route!

The altitude differences on the routes from the starting point to the hiking route and from the walking route to the endpoint are not included in the totals!

Total Descend 234 m

The elevation data contains minor measurement errors which can cause the total ascend and the total decend to be (far) too high.

The altitude differences on the routes from the starting point to the hiking route and from the walking route to the endpoint are not included in the totals!

Speed on level terrain km/h

Ascend speed m/h

Descend speed m/h

The speeds to be used for the calculation can be adjusted.

The calculation is an approximation. The actual duration varies per person and also depends on the terrain and the weather conditions.

The formula used to calculate the walking time: Walkingtime = distance / horizontalspeed + ( totalascend / ascendspeed + totaldescend / descendspeed)/2

Groot Frieslandpad waymarkedtrails.org openstreetmap.org

Heights have been added to Waymarkedtrails tracks using the website gpsvisualizer.com.

The exact locations of Cities, Towns, Villages and Hamlets are based on the locations that Openstreetmap gives. Usually this is somewhere in the center.

**The distances in the table and on the map are an approximation!!** This is because the actual routes from the Groot Frieslandpad to the POI are not included.

The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the Groot Frieslandpad is the shortest distance to the Groot Frieslandpad 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 Groot Frieslandpad ** + ** Distance point 2 to nearest point on the Groot Frieslandpad ** + ** Distance between the two nearest points on the Groot Frieslandpad

If points 1 and 2 are close to the Groot Frieslandpad, the calculated distance is usually a good approximation.

If one of the two points is situated further from Groot Frieslandpad, the actual distance may differ (significantly) from the calculated distance.

It is recommended to check the route from a starting point to the Groot Frieslandpad and from the Groot Frieslandpad 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 Groot Frieslandpad and from the Groot Frieslandpad to the end point.

** The track of the Groot Frieslandpad may include errors. Also, the recorded POIs may include errors! It is recommended to check the track and points before walking the path! **
