> Would you mind sharing how you put your GPS data into google maps?
I've been playing with Google Earth, and found it pretty simple to
load in fully 3-D GPS tracks. You can angle the view to see your
variation in altitude (sometimes it helps to turn off terrain height
in Google Earth).
I've got a little C++ script that converts standard NMEA (with a
$GPGGA string and any others) to Google Earth KML. Just drop your
NMEA text file on the program and it'll convert it, then open the KML
file with Google Earth. Takes a couple of seconds to parse a 40
minute log, don't know how long it'd take to do a 24 hour one!
.exe, source and sample NMEA/KML files at
There's loads of other things you can do with KML - check out
Hope this helps.
