Plan My Walk: The Ultimate Trekking Guide for New Zealand

Plan My Walk, a website and app that helps walkers plan short and long-distance treks throughout New Zealand has added routes controlled by Christchurch City Council to its database. The programme was carried out in partnership with the Parks and Spatial teams of the Council and the New Zealand Mountain Safety Council (MSC), which developed the app.

Critical information about the trails is available on Plan My Walk, such as their length, topography, location, and complexity; suggested gear lists; track alerts; weather predictions; and reviews and suggestions from trail users. According to MSC Chief Executive Mike Daisley, the app is the first of its type because it integrates all aspects of trip planning, from a little stroll around a local park to a multi-day walk across the Southern Alps.

According to Daisley, the programme enhances users’ situational consciousness and understanding, which enables them to take responsibility more effectively for their safety. In addition, the app contains a safety function that allows users to communicate with others regarding their trip plans.

The long-term goal of the application is to develop a community that promotes careful preparation for outdoor excursions by encouraging the exchange of track reports. It will be accomplished as part of the app’s functionality. The management, ownership, and funding of the app are all the responsibility of MSC. They spent over a thousand hours developing the software and made it available to the public in 2021.

According to Kay Holder, who oversees regional parks for the Christchurch City Council, the council’s participation in the project was beneficial. Additionally, the more boards and other track and land managers participate in the project, the more comprehensive and accurate the walking database becomes for native New Zealanders and international visitors. MSC will be kept up to date on the track network by the council, including information on any newly added tracks, maintenance, or closures. MSC has been granted financing by Herenga Nuku, the Outdoor Access Commission, to continue the development of mobile applications over the next two years.

As a component of digital transformation activities being out worldwide, numerous nations’ governmental service delivery systems now use mobile applications extensively. The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) in the Philippines underwent a digital transition with the assistance of the SAFE NCRPO APP Alert. Launching the app was to promote a means of reporting criminal activities that is both more effective and timelier.

Users can send a message to the nearest police officers who are currently patrolling the area with the tap of a finger on their smartphones. The alert server has been designed to connect with the Tactical Operation Centres (TOCs) of the NCRPO. If the app detects insufficient mobile network coverage, it will notify the user via text message.

The government of Thailand has released an application to provide its residents with enhanced security from online con artists, fake news, and financial criminals. “Pao Tang” is an alert channel developed through a collaborative effort between the Ministry of Digital and the state-owned Krung Thai Bank. The channel is intended to notify users of online fraud and false or misleading information.

The Wallet app will serve as another route for disseminating truthful information that various government bodies have validated. The apps will provide warnings about fraudulent websites and phoney news stories that are associated with fraudulent financial activity or illegal financial activity. As a result, users can keep up with the most recent developments and are equipped to deal with the newly introduced complexity, which has resulted in significant harm.
