The GPS Blog

Yet another GPS application

Because I have a marine Garmin Montana 600 and Liz has a bike Garmin Edge 500, thoughts turned to what to do with the data. The result is this GPS Blog application. There's lots of other GPS track display applications out there but this one displays the data just the way I like it!

What does the GPS Blog do?

A 35 year old Wayfarer This application has an whole bunch of GPS tracks plotted on Google Maps. Many are are from sailing, canoeing, biking and dog walking activities on or near the Exe Estuary in Devon. However, some are from a little farther afield...

You can scroll through the "carousel" above and click on any map. This will take you through to an interactive Google Map where you zoom in/out, replay the track, see speeds and directions, view any photographs taken during the activity and leave comments. To find more GPS tracks click on the search icon at the top of the page or see the sitemap.

For sailing and canoeing activities Navionics marine chart overlays are displayed by default. For walking and cycling activities, elevation data is graphically displayed along with a speed graph.

For some information about how and why this web site was created, see the FAQ page.

Most of the data on The GPS Blog is publicly visible. However, a few activities and some photos are tagged as "private". If you know Liz or Aidan, why not click the button below to get in contact and be added to the list with full access.
