bluewalks is a free collaborative platform to discover, create and share walking tours with everybody. The main concept is to allow anybody create and update the information of any route, just like how Wikipedia does for its pages. It is a combination of Google Maps and Wikipedia. Users can also embed images with description on each point of interest when they draw their walks. The service provides an embed functionality to insert the created map onto any webpage or blog. [1]

This project started off in 2008 by a group of student from Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. So far, bluewalks has won various awards which includes Seedrocket[2] 2009 and Start Innovation & Sustainability[3] 2009. The project is created with a goal to rediscover the city through the eye of city travellers and to encourage people to share their unique perspective of their own location.

On 8 September 2009, bluewalks released its iphone application bluewalks mobile on the App Store.[4]
