Using this Data
One of the primary objectives of the Bunker Trails project is to provide interested adventure seekers with information about Albania's backcountry in an open, easily exchanged format. To achieve this objective, the data is presented in two ways: KML, a file type developed by the makers of Google Earth, and GPX, an XML-based format used to exchange GPS information. Most GPS and GIS applications will be able to properly access at least one of these formats. It is the authors' intention that this information can be directly uploaded into a GPS unit for easy trail navigation, as currently little infrastructure exists. However, for safety reasons, GPS should not be exclusively relied upon and should never replace a compass and paper map.
