Abstract: The development of the hiking paths network in the Campania Region, its marking and maintenance in the field, as well as the relative cartographic restitution on up-to-date maps are nowadays important objectives, since the naturalistic tourism in mountainous environment has recently become more intense, and consequently it is necessary a correct and secure fruition of the hiking paths in the various Campanian mountains groups. Therefore, it is important implementing a Geographical Information System (GIS) dedicated to the Campanian hiking paths network with the aim of process, storing and managing all the parameters and characteristics of the local paths, also during time. In this study some routes of naturalistic and environmental particular value have been selected, which are located in the Lattari Mountains Group, the Vesuvius National Park and the Capri Island. GPS field survey measurements have been carried out along these routes and stored using the national official digital cartography. The field measurements have been taken during yearly scheduled excursions of the Neapolitan section of the Italian Alpine Club. The acquired data have been plotted on the relative maps, stored with the relative attributes tables and visualized through Google Earth interactively.The obtained results represent a feasibility study for a GIS of the hiking paths network of the Campania Region, with evident advantages and possible future developments not only for the trekkers but also for environment protection goals.
