Pelgrimspad deel 1
waymarkedtrails.org openstreetmap.org
Pelgrimspad deel 2 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 Pelgrimspad to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the Pelgrimspad is the shortest distance to the Pelgrimspad 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 Pelgrimspad + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the Pelgrimspad + Distance between the two nearest points on the Pelgrimspad

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

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

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