track to route

Recommended Posts

Your track is made from a GPSr as you travel/hike. You typically save this so that you can view it in your GPSr, use the "backtrack" function, or export the track file to use on your computer in a map or geotagging program. Most GPSr units have a function to convert the track to a route that you can use the route in the field.

It's so difficult that the user has to select a track, then "right click" and choose "convert to track". That makes every trackpoint into a route point.


In reality, the user needs to first "simplify" the track (reduce the number of trackpoints) down to the desired number of preferred route points, THEN do the above "convert to route". How much/how many times you "simplify" and down to how many points is totally up to you.


The whole process takes less than 30 sec.........
