Download (3676Kb)


    The aim of this thesis was to develop a mobile application for promoting running in the valley of Soča, promoting running guiding services and running events in this area. Trail running is a type of running in natural environment, such as mountains, forests or in the outdoor, with minimal possible paved or asphalt roads. We have reviewed three similar existing applications and focused on their functionality. For the aplication development, we have used PhoneGap open source software in the Framework 7 environment, which is adapted to mobile applications and is based on the HTML5 web programming languages. We have presented all technologies and tools that we used. The application is compatible with various mobile platforms. Testing was performed both: locally on the computer and physically on mobile devices. The developed application contains tourist information about Soča Valley, information about running guiding services and events in this area and also advices on running in the mountains. The essence of the application are running paths in seven different areas or places in the valley of Soča. Running paths are presented with all relevant information such as pictures, maps, descriptions, starting location, length, ascent, descent and the lowest and highest point on the path. All data except data from competitions are copyrighted. The application also offers sending GPS track of each path to an email address, which can be later uploaded to GPS device by the user.
