Elevation Copyright (c) 2010, Dave Shea All rights reserved. http://exnihilo.mezzoblue.com/elevation/ http://github.com/mezzoblue/Elevation Elevation is a route visualizer that renders GPS data in 3D space. You'll need to have a GPS-equipped phone or device capable of tracking your activity as you run, hike, cycle, skate, ski, snowboard, or whatever other physical activity you choose to map. You'll also need the ability to export that data as XML, in either GPX, TCX or KML format. (If you have files in just about any another format, you can probably use GPSBabel [http://gpsbabel.org/] to convert them to GPX files and get them working with Elevation.) Open ./data/xml/ -- there you'll see some example data called ExampleRoute05.gpx etc. that comes with the application; you can safely delete these example files and replace them with your own. Once you've added your files, restart Elevation. To move the map around, use the controls underneath it. To rotate the view, click and drag within the viewport. To move faster, hold down the shift key as you press the buttons. Elevation knows how to work with XML files in the GPX, TCX and KML formats. Due to inconsistent file structures, and thanks to Processing's limited DOM traversal, it may not work with every such file. If not, get in touch; I can probably make yours work.
