Dickinson Running Routes with Difficulty – Anne Dyroff

The Dickinson College cross-country team has created a large number of running routes in the Carlisle area. Each running route is communicated to new members of the team via word-of-mouth. The problems addressed with this project are the difficulty in learning all of the available running routes through Carlisle, and the lack of knowledge about each route. In order to make the created running routes more accessible, a detailed map of each route has been created. Each map has been rendered to display the difficulty of each section of the route. The difficulty rating is based upon slope gradient and hill length. A hard copy of each map is available in addition to the online accessibility of each map.POSTER2
