Sharing and Promoting Your Adventure Plans


We’re creating FATMAP to be the home of the outdoors for everyone, from beginners and enthusiasts to pro-athletes and experts.

A huge section of our community are outdoor experts, mountain guides and educators. These are the people we rely on to ensure the rest of us not only have a good time out there, but a safe one too.

If you’re a guide or mountain leader, there are a number of features on FATMAP that will be particularly useful to you when it comes to planning and sharing your trips.

Keep on reading to find out more about these features and also how you can get your hands on our Premium subscription with FATMAP Expert Access.


UsIng FATMAP to plan and Share your itineraries

Your clients are not only excited about going on the adventure itself, but they also want to know the details of what’s involved and where they are going.

Once you’ve drawn your route or uploaded your GPX file, our newly designed adventure information panel makes it easier than ever to add more detail to your routes then share this information.

How to create adventure and import GPX files

If you plan to share the route with your clients, you can add important logistical information in the description, such as the meeting place, time and what gear you recommend they bring.

Now your route is ready to share with your clients, simply click the share button (see the screenshot below) and send your guests a link directly to this adventure. They will now have all the information they need as well as a fully interactive, high resolution 3D map of the route.

Show off your adventures

As well as sharing direct links to your adventures with your clients, another way to show off your trips is to add an interactive embed to your website and blog, like the example below.
