Introducing TroutRoutes Online Maps
TroutRoutes has always had a goal of being the premier trout stream mapping platform, providing everything from public access to detailed access points like camping and parking. Since beginning the TroutRoutes project in 2017, we’ve always believed that the mobile use case was critical for on-site exploring of trout streams. With smartphone adoption continuing to increase across all ages, we’ve focused our project on creating user friendly smartphone apps on Android and iOS that help you explore and navigate trout streams and public access.
That said, we’ve recognized the importance of creating a cross-platform mapping experience for several reasons. For one, computers and websites are still a common use case, and having a mapping experience thats available on both your smartphone and computer is a desirable feature. Computers have keyboards, touch pads, and big screens. They can be easier to use and more powerful. Best of yet, you can get away with exploring our TroutRoutes maps while at home, at the cabin, or at work.
This is why we are working to expand our TroutRoutes maps to be available online. Our long-term vision is to have TroutRoutes available on all platforms, including online. You’ll have all features available to you, you’ll have all of your content, your notes, pictures, favorites and places synced in real-time between all devices.
Today, we’re excited to announce our first step on the journey to our long-term goal. We’ve released our first version of TroutRoutes Online Maps on our website. Best part? It’s available to the public, for free. Long-term, we will continue building out our user interface, add features, and sync to your account so you can manage your subscription status. With only a few more weeks in the Fall season for most of our covered states, we hope you appreciate this new tool to help you get on the water a few more times before Winter takes hold!
