JGPSTrackEdit is a GPS track editor for editing (gps) tracks and planning (multiple days) tours.
An abritary number of tracks may be opened or created, tracks may be merged. A track may be splitted, compressed or reversed.
Points may be inserted or appended to a track (routing supported) or may be moved or deleted from a track. The evelations of track points may be updated automatically.
Maps of several providers are available, the default map is OpenStreetMap.
Currently supported track formats: garmin route, gpx and txc, kml, import from http://www.gpsies.com.
JGPSTrackEdit is written in the java language. To run the software, a java runtime installation is required (may be obtained from http://www.java.com/download/index.jsp)
JGPSTrackEdit is now in a production state and should be usable. [known issues]

JGPSTrackEdit was developed by Hubert Lutnik, an enthusiastic java programmer and mountain bike rider from Carinthia/Austria (http://www.kaernten.at/).
In 2011 the author has planned a tour from his home town Klagenfurt (http://www.klagenfurt.at/) to Rome. (The tour was made in July 2011, 10 days and over 900km, see http://www.gpsies.com/map.do?fileId=ewcdgphhglewpqxg). The planning task was quite an effort, since no perfect suitable tool was available (Although there are several useful tools on the internet). So the author decided to programm his own gps track editor. The other motivation was to use the java programming language in a bigger project (to stay fit in programming...)
