GPS 2 HTML Report
This is a utility written in Haskell, to generate HTML reports from GPS track files.
Included in the report:
- Details of the journey... journey time, distance travelled etc..
- Diagrams charting speed, elevation, accumulated distance etc..
- OpenStreetMap diagram highlighting the GPS track
An example can be seen here.
The hackage page is here.
A user first of all needs to install the Haskell Platform, and a few additional system packages - GraphcsMagick and Cairo . For exmaple, on an RPM-based machine, as root:
># yum install haskell-platform GraphicsMagick cairo gtk2hs-buildtools
The recommended way to install the gps2HtmlReport program, is to grab it via hackage:
cabal update cabal install gps2htmlReport
Or to install the version in the github repository:
git clone git://github.com/robstewart57/Gps2HtmlReport.git cd Gps2HtmlReport cabal update cabal configure cabal install
First of all, you need to have your GPS date in a GPX file. There are many gpx exporters available. I use my Android phone to take GPX tracks, with a great application, OSMTracker. This application allows you to export your GPS tracks to GPX. I am sure that there are plenty of good applications for iOS to perform the same function. And I'm aware that GPS devices allow .gpx files to be extracted from GPS logs.
The program will search for all files ending in ".gpx", and for each one, generate a HTML report.
$ cd $location_of_gpx_files $ ls 1.gpx $ gps2HtmlReport --help gps2HtmlReport [OPTIONS] A Haskell utility to generate HTML page reports of GPS Tracks and Track overlays on OpenStreetMap tiles Common flags: -i --imageonly Generates only an image of the track overlay on an OpenStreetMap layer -a --archive Produce tar archive for web and image files --hashnames Create reports in hashed directory names -h --help Display help message -v --version Print version information -V --Verbose Loud verbosity -q --quiet Quiet verbosity
If you receive this error when trying to run the program:
can't load .so/.DLL for: stdc++ (libstdc++.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
... then you are experiencing this bug: #5289.
To fix this
- Fedora 32bit: $# ln -vs $(gcc --print-file-name=libstdc++.so) /usr/lib/
- Fedora 64bit: $# ln -vs $(gcc --print-file-name=libstdc++.so) /usr/lib64/
- Ubuntu 32bit: $# ln -vs $(gcc --print-file-name=libstdc++.so) /usr/local/lib/
- Ubuntu 64bit: $# ln -vs $(gcc --print-file-name=libstdc++.so) /usr/local/lib64/
If you experience other problems, please let me know - and preferrably sending me the problematic .gpx file.
Thanks to Thomas DuBuisson, for implementing the `gps' package and contributing it to Hackage.
