The idea for this service originated on a post from uparrow on the "Somebody Make This" Reddit.
It was then developped by Medusis with input from the Reddit community (and others).
Much insight was gained from http://econym.org.uk/gmap/ (the best Google Maps tutorial... if not the prettiest!) and http://maps.forum.nu/.
This app lets you find a route from a starting point that gets you right back where you started!
  • Find a starting point: search for a location by name and/or move the map, then click on the map to set a starting point
  • A proposed route is then automatically generated; find other routes by clicking on "Get me another route!"
  • You can change the total distance by using the slider below the map
  • Share, send: copy the url and send it to your friends; bookmark it to save it
  • New! now includes elevation (click the graph to change the direction of the route)
