Calculate walking time
Speed on level terrain km/h
Ascent speed m/h
Descent 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 + ( totalascent / ascentspeed + totaldescent / descentspeed)/2

Notes on the map and the table

The route of the Pieterpad is based on Openstreetmap.org data. The route is obtained from waymarkedtrail.org.
The most recent version of the route can be seen on Waymarkedtrails and Openstreetmap. The Pieterpad route was downloaded from Waymarkedtrails on November 23, 2019.
Pieterpad part 1
waymarkedtrails.org openstreetmap.org
Pieterpad part 2 waymarkedtrails.org openstreetmap.org
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 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 Pieterpad to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the Pieterpad is the shortest distance to the Pieterpad 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 Pieterpad + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the Pieterpad + Distance between the two nearest points on the Pieterpad

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

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

The track of the Pieterpad 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!
