Yea, USAPhotoMaps and also QuakeMaps will both overlay your tracks onto aerial and topo maps. I've used both to document my longer hikes in the mountains, create hike report graphs (e.g. elevation vs. time) and show my route on maps. Check my website (link in profile) if you're interested in examples, e.g. the "Big Slide" hike....


They work well. For just a quick download and import into Excel, I use G7toWin.
