Green Heartland Cycling App
On your bike.
Aishling works as Rural Recreation Development Officer for Roscommon LEADER Partnership. Part of her remit is to develop tourism experiences in the area and to create destinations.
The Green Heartlands Cycle Route is a fully marked cycling tour through beautiful South Roscommon. The route is split into 7 stages, with an additional 3 family-friendly stages. The total route is 217km long and takes cyclists through gently sloping hills, farmland, bog, forest and wetlands along beautiful rivers and lakes.
Turn by turn, interactive mapping
The Green Heartlands App was created for locals and tourists alike, to help guide them through the cycling routes of County Roscommon. Integrating with Mapbox the Green Heartlands App shows the different routes available along with giving directions for each route. The interactive map shows the user where attractions are located, such as National Monuments, places to eat, places to stay and much more. The user can filter these attractions to show only the ones relevant to them. The map displays the users current location and is updated in real time as they travel, letting them know the distance left to their finishing point. Along with the map the app shows the user the profile of the road in terms of difficulty and elevation.
Working with Boon
“Having worked with Boon Agency in the development of a Rural Recreation App, I can’t recommend them highly enough. They are highly knowledgeable in the area of App Development and in my case, their knowledge in marrying ‘App Development’ with the most up to date ‘Mapping formats’ was a particular niche area of knowledge, which benefitted my project.
Boon Agency has worked with my office in a very professional and helpful way. Flexibility was a particular aspect of their service, where they collaborated in creating that bespoke App for my purpose, which will withstand future technology adaptations, which was very reassuring. Overall, I would rate Boon Agency extremely highly. ”
