Is there any interest in being able to publish trails via geo json data?

Hey Trevor,

Thanks for reaching out and for checking out the site!

I'm interested in the use case for publishing GeoJSON data. Right now we allow folks to download trail data in the .gpx file format - are you looking for something different from that?

To be honest, I don't even truly know what GeoJSON is... Help me out here!

XML type data set. It also has the ability to hold polygons and line sets.

Hey guys, for now we have no plans to change our content adding/exporting flow. This is something we will definitely discuss in the future, but just don't have the engineering capacity at the moment.
