The GEORAMA project involved the development of a web-based geo-navigational portal that provides all the necessary information and services to the mountain and countryside tourism community, including climbers, trekkers, hikers, rafters, naturalists, extreme sports practitioners, general tourists, as well as the local population. The system provided detailed maps, paths and information for the European countryside together with search engine guides, and updated information on local conditions.
Geographical Information Systems (GIS) were used as technological basis of the system. GEORAMA offered its content free of charge. Financial self-sustainability was ensured through revenue from the promotion of tourist services. The venture valorised public-owned digital maps in order to promote the local development of mountain and countryside communities.
