Wikiloc is a project that I have been following since it won the mashup competition of Google Maps Spain in 2006. After a redesign at the beginning of this year that helped it gain considerably in traffic, now comes the definitive support for this project as it becomes a part of the information layer available on Google Earth.
Jordi Ramot tells me that the increase in traffic on an international level is an important one and that the moment has arrived to give full dedication to this project. Wikiloc offers its users an application with which to manage their GPS routes and place them on Google maps.
I don’t know if Wikiloc will get the level of support from Google similar to the support received by Panoramio, but I do believe that this news is very relevant for the project, mostly for the repercussion it means on an international level.
