Project Purpose[edit]

Manuals and Documentation[edit]

In order to use a Strava heatmap overlay I set a custom background in the ID editor for https://anygis.ru/api/v1/Tracks_Strava_All/{x}/{y}/{z}. This, while not the best resolution, allows me to get a better sense of where trails may go through the woods without having to run or bike that path many times to aggregate data points.

USGS for Old Maps[edit]

I was able to pull a map of the Elkton area in 1937 from the USGS site to reference for possible points of interest. This would have been while the buildings and roads in the area of interest were still there and not torn down or taken back by nature. I used these reference points to pull the data to OSM to gather the coordinates.

OSM for Coordinates[edit]

In order to retrieve coordinates for a node in OSM the API can be used for a quick and easy solution. All that's needed is the node ID for the input. For the node ID 9244330187 you would type in https://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/node/9244330187. The coordinates are copied out as part of the return. These can then be copied elsewhere. I gathered all my data points in Google's My Maps in order to have a clean layout for everything.

Google's My Maps[edit]

My map was created based on the approximate points given by the old maps. Since the elevations are the same increments and the old maps were done by hand none of this is exact so plenty of searching can be expected on location even if the general area is known. Since the park service didn't consider these places notable there is always the chance that the referenced building is already long gone with no trace of it remaining. Link to My Maps
