Keen on riding, walking or bycycling? Tourists might want to go to areas that are not well known, or they might want to compose their own routes which will bring them to natural or cultural attractions of their choice.
For many years, the Danish municipalities have used with GIS and maps for the urban plannning puposes. They tended to keep the maps to themselves. Now, however, the rich resource of computerised maps are made accessible to tourists and local leisure seekers. On www.friluftskortvejle.dk it is possible to customize a map by adding thematic issues and to zoom in and out.
This resource is under development, and new categories of information will be added. In some forest districts wellness facilities such as gym instruments will be established at selected locations. This resouce will also be indicated on the maps. There is a comprehensive effort in Vejle to increase the health profile. Using the facilities in the attractive surroundings along the fjord and in the forests is part of this plan. The local population is a test audience for facilities that will aslo be appropriate in connection with tourism.
