From the City of Greenville, S.C. GIS Division with support from the City’s Parks and Recreation Department and the Greenville County Recreation District comes an interactive map and mobile app of the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The includes data on ATM's, bathrooms and parking places along the 13.5 mile route. It runs via and requires the download for use on mobile devices. The sources on the basemap read:

Sources: Esri, DeLorme, NAVTEQ, TomTom, Intermap, iPC, USGS, FAO, NPS, NRCAN, GeoBase, IGN, Kadaster NL, Ordnance Survey, Esri Japan, METI, Esri China (Hong Kong), and the GIS User Community

I wonder how well the general public will take ot these based maps.
