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 or Google Maps 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 Grote Rivierenpad to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the Grote Rivierenpad is the shortest distance to the Grote Rivierenpad 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 Grote Rivierenpad + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the Grote Rivierenpad + Distance between the two nearest points on the Grote Rivierenpad

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

It is recommended to check the route from a starting point to the Grote Rivierenpad and from the Grote Rivierenpad 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 Grote Rivierenpad and from the Grote Rivierenpad to the end point.

The track of the Grote Rivierenpad 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!
