If you’re one of my legion of rabid fans of everything I do, you’ve already noticed by now the improvements I’ve made over at UCSDCycling.org. For the rest of you, here’s an overview.
I recently stumbled across GPS Visualizer.com. It’s an amazing website full of all kinds of GPS tools. The one I found to be useful was the Google map tool. It can take all kinds of GPS data files, and it outputs the route superimposed on a draggable Google map. Since I use a Garmin Forerunner 301, I can use the GPS data to make a Google map route.
There are two ways I can go about this:
- Upload my data to Motionbased.com, which then allows me to download the route as either a KML or GPX file. I then give that to GPS Visualizer.
- Use LoadMyTracks to download the data off my GPS to my iMac, and then (after some parsing) upload that file to GPS Visualizer.
