oSoc17 #LopenInGent Banner

The #LopenInGent project is an effort to create an enjoyable, customizable and dynamic running app for the city of Ghent. Here's a showcase of our major features:

  • Running route generation based on a distance or an amount of time (eg. I want to run 5 km or I want to run for 30 minutes)

  • Route recalculation if you go off the given route, the recalculation will be within the distance/time constraint.

  • Routes always go back to the starting point, it will never take the same route to go back.

  • It's possible to add distance or time while you're running.

  • Users can select multiple attributes for a given run. (eg. I want to run on soft ground or I want to run next to parks)

  • Audio guidance while you are running (Heartrate feedback, directions, ...)

  • Keep track of your running statistics and previous runs.


You can find installation instructions on the repository's wiki page.
