Trail Data Manager™ extends WordPress to manage conservation holdings, trails and land stewards. You can use Trail Data Manager™ to maintain a database of your land and trails with maps, photos, GPS trailhead coordinates, descriptions, cautions, feature lists and more. Using shortcodes for WordPress, you can present an overview table, detailed trail pages and a navigation list of trails in your WordPress powered website. You can even present a downloadable PDF trail guide generated from the same data.

Key Features:

  • Same What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get editing tools as WordPress posts and pages
  • Manage information on trails, land stewards and the relationships between them
  • WordPress shortcodes for overview table, detailed trail pages and complete trail guide
  • Includes script for generating PDF trail guide from the database for an always current, downloadable trail guide
  • Generate dynamic trail locator map with Google Maps and GPS trailhead coordinates from the database using a WordPress shortcode
  • Use GPS tracks to show trails on Google Maps, show map images or both
  • Show dynamic trail “menu” using WordPress shortcode on pages or in sidebar widgets

Trail Data Manager™ is in use by multiple conservation trusts and was originally developed as a custom project for Littleton Conservation Trust in Littleton, Massachusetts. Trail Data Manager™ is available immediately as part of website design and development projects we deliver. Land and conservation trusts from Virginia to New England are now benefiting from Trail Data Manager.
