Google Maps route to GPX convertor

Maemo-mapper runs on the Nokia 770. It supports use with a bluetooth GPS receiver. It reformats Google Maps directions into a GPX file, and will display that route and announce turns as you approach them.

GPX Planners

Maemo-mapper runs on the Nokia 770. It supports use with a bluetooth GPS receiver. It reformats Google Maps directions into a GPX file, and will display that route and announce turns as you approach them.

hand authored bike routes

May at TikiRobot! has been marking up her cycling routes. She uses photographs of landmarks, a map image, and a textual description, or textual directions. There is no implied schema, but would be a good candidate for adding address or geo info.

RussNelson at his blog has been documenting his bike rides. A Garmin Foretrex 201 records the route, gpsbabel downloads it to his Linux desktop, maptracks.py uses Terraserver topo tiles to create a map from the track, and create-rides.py creates the structure of a blog entry using tracklength.py to calculate speed and distance. Photos get geolocated from the track, but only on demand. The resultant blog entry has a map which links to a Google Maps mashup displaying the track.

hand authored flight record

Jeremy Zawodny has has narrated flights He uses photographs of landmarks, a map image, and a textual description, with links to landmarks. There is no implied schema, but would be a good candidate for adding address or geo info.
