New Open Canal Map

A free UK canal and river map has been launched for Desktop, Android and iPhone/iPad, created using users’ contributions and CRT’s Map Open Data. You can add information to the maps by typing in a place name and dragging a red marker to the exact location you want. Then add the information about the place (e.g. toilet, laundrette, recycling, chandlery, mooring with rings, electric hook up etc.) or navigation advice (e.g. CRT key required to operate bridge). Then submit your data and, after it has been processed, you will be able to view it on the map. After 18 days of its release, the map had 10,000 views and over 200 markers placed on it by 136 users.
