View Full Version : B2W day tracker

04-18-2012, 02:05 PM
Is someone computer savy enough or know of a good program that would let us overlay our B2W day routes and pitstops that we visit on one map. I was thinking Google or RidewithGPS, but not sure. It would be cool to see a single map with about 100 different routes. Would also be a pretty cool chart for BikeArlington to see how people use their trails.

google maps can do that a bit, but have limited layers they can display at once. There's gotta be some data geeks on here that have some better modeling tools.

or someone more handy than me could use the openstreetmap.org (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Openlayers_Track_example)

working on it... not the easiest utility to work with, I don't even see an undo button!

If someone wants their route on there, the easiest way seems to be mapping the route in google maps (using the "beta" cycling option), saving it to a map, then save the KML file. Alternately, you can PM me your rough start/end points and I can map it, then import. The problem with making the map world editable is that it's very easy to make a mistake and wipe it all out. If someone else wants to make a map who knows how to handle umapper, feel free! :)

that's a cool map, but I think essigmw (http://bikearlingtonforum.com/member.php?1061-essigmw) was talking about loading maps up afterwards, so we could look at where all the forum members commuted from/to. Did I read that right?

ahh ok, I wasn't sure if it was before (for planning meetups) or for just seeing all the different routes people took.

I was thinking after, but before would be cool too.

I'm planning to hit up (in order) Falls Church, Ballston, Rosslyn and Reagan (formerly Freedom Plaza). The first three of those open at 6:30am so I'll be up early :D
There's also 3 stops (Farragut, Murrow Park, NGS) well within striking distance of work but I think 4 stops should be enough.
