  • Maps: Detailed map of the Great Wall in the Beijing area version 7

    The Great Wall Forum is pleased to announce the release of version 7 of our detailed map of the Great Wall of China in the Beijing area. This map is packaged as a kmz file for use with Google Earth.

    You must comply with the license agreement to use the map. Basically, the agreement contains these rules:
    • The map is only for personal, non-commercial use.
    • You may not copy, redistribute, or modify the map.
    • You are strongly urged to help protect and preserve the Great Wall.
    The map is a community project. Users are encouraged to contribute additions, corrections, and suggestions.

    The map contains the following features:
    • 221 Great Wall paths totaling 542 kilometers (337 miles)
    • 65 Great Wall location markers
    • 1192 tower location markers
    • 32 driving routes totaling 2724 kilometers (1692 miles)
    • 92 hiking trails totaling 75 kilometers (47 miles)
    • 10 cable cars, toboggans, slides
    • 42 fortress locations and 33 fortress outlines
    • District and county borders
    • Other items of interest
    All items are carefully organized in a hierarchy of folders.

    Please note that this map only covers the Beijing Municipality area. The map includes an installer that works only with Microsoft Windows. It is not available for other operating systems.

    The Beijing Great Wall map is a work in progress. The current release is dated August 1, 2011. Please check back regularly for updates as we continually improve the map.

    Hi. I'm wondering if it is possible to see a preview of the new map? I'd like to get it but would like to see a sample of what it looks like if that's possible?
    Thanks,

          If the installation completed successfully, you will find a new .kmz file in your Documents folder.

            I have an iPad with google Maps, will this work with it sans internet connection? Also does it show nearby hotels/hostels or places to overnight on the wall or near the wall?
            Thanks,

              It will work on your iPad if you have Google Earth installed.

              Google Earth can be used offline.

              It does not include hotels and restaurants.
