Run by kitefliers, for kitefliers, the KiteMap.org system was created with the idea of giving people worldwide a central database where they can easily search for and add international flying sites (fields), complete with information that would help them catalog and choose based on geographic location, wind, on-site facilities, etc.
All too often we’d encounter folks in any of these situations, who didn’t have a central resource:
We hope you find this service to be of value, and that you take the time to add your favorite flying locations for others to find and enjoy.
Most likely, it's still being reviewed and you'll receive an email when approved by an admin.
The directions generated by Google are based on transportation, so they will point to the nearest drivable point.
We have a site correction form you can use (click here), information will be reviewed by an admin for addition.
No, there is no limit - add as many as you like!
No, this is a kiting community resource and open to all... We welocome submissions from dual, quad or single line fliers of all kinds, and ask only that you take the time to include sufficient details in your site submissions to make it as easy as possible for other fliers to understand if the site will work for the kties they're flying.
No, this site is a 100% free service to the general public.
All web services (domain, hosting and design) are sponsored by Kitelife.com as a public service.
If you'd like to contribute, feel free to do so through the "Friends of Kitelife" page.
The idea was put forth by Andy Scott and Bob Curtis (2/19/11) to John Barresi, who had also been considering the concept for some time... While it was a team effort, the core of this site (Google API) was handled by Andy, with web design work done by Kitelife and significant contributions from a core group of beta testers on the Revolution forum
