Route Planning with Google Maps
Komoot is a German language route planning application with a number of really useful features.
The site uses OpenStreetMap, Google Satellite and Google Terrain map layers to help users plan their route. When planning a hiking or cycling route users can view points of interest along the route and adjust the trip to take in any that take their fancy.
Finished routes come with lots of information, such as the length of the route, its difficulty and an altitude chart. The app is available for the desktop and for iPhone and Android smart phones.
