WALKERS, cyclists and horse riders have hundreds of miles of the county’s rights of way at their fingertips after they were put on the internet.

Hampshire County Council has made the information downloadable on computers, tablet computers and even mobile phones with applications such as Google Earth maps.

The data will show the location of paths featured on Hampshire’s Definitive Map of Public Rights of Way and will be regularly updated to show any changes in the network.

This will enable users to track themselves whilst exploring the countryside, as well as provide more technologically minded residents with the opportunity to create new applications using the data.

The Rights of Way data can also be viewed in a similar format online via the website, allowing the public to manipulate maps and plan their own routes.

However it will not show Portsmouth or Southampton.
