Trailmapping.com was a fun experiment with rapid development in Django I released almost 5 years ago now(!). I spoke about it at the first DjangoCon (also my first “real” talk in front of an audience). I didn’t give it much attention after the initial release, however, and the last meaningful commits are almost 4 years old now. Despite the lack of attention, over 2000 trips were posted and nearly 1500 people registered for the site.

Today, there are much better places to post and share GPS data and it’s long past the time to put this project to bed. We’ll be shutting down the server on July 20, 2013 (its 5 year anniversary). If you have any questions feel free to post a comment or chat with us in #lincolnloop on the Freenode IRC network.
