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!

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 Zuiderzeepad 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 Zuiderzeepad route was downloaded from Waymarkedtrails on June 21, 2020.
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 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 Zuiderzeepad to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the Zuiderzeepad is the shortest distance to the Zuiderzeepad 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 Zuiderzeepad + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the Zuiderzeepad + Distance between the two nearest points on the Zuiderzeepad

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

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

The track of the Zuiderzeepad 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!
