About GPX Mapper

GPX Mapper is a tool for plotting, analyzing, editing, and creating GPS data with Google Maps.
Input and output files are of the GPX format, which is a XML format for GPS data.
More information on GPX can be found at www.topografix.com. There you can also download EasyGPS, a free tool for downloading and uploading data from and to GPS receivers.
GPSBabel is a helpful tool for translating file formats of all kinds to and from GPX format. You can find it at www.gpsbabel.org.

Calculation of distance and bearing is based on the Movable Type Scripts developed by Chris Veness (www.moveable-type.co.uk).
The draggable and resizable windows were developed by Mike Hall (www.brainjar.com).

Calculation of stretch related values

Data like speed, bearing and ascent rate are calculated by GPX Mapper as average values for the stretch between two successive points. For convenience these values are linked to the first of the two points, although they actually reflect the values for the entire stretch between the two points.
