GPS AND MAPPING TOOLS



=> Online Track and Waypoints visualization

This tool visualizes over a map tracks and waypoints saved within a specific user file.
The user can use both road maps and aerial photographs. The map size is automatically adjusted according to the area covered by the tracks.
Tracks and waypoints must be saved in GPX format.
The conversion of a GPS log file into .GPX format can be easily performed with lot of freeware SW tools available on the Internet.

=> MyGPS

MyGPS is a Freeware software tool for the creation and the management of longitude and latitude calibrated maps.
The software can define points of interest obtaining their coordinates (waypoints), can create routes (routepoints), can visualize track paths (trackpoints).
Using a serial link based on NMEA protocol, real time view of the position on the map and current track record are also possible.
Thanks to the import/export via GPX format, all GPS information can be shared with almost any other GPS data management and communication software.

I programmed this software tool in 2002 when first portable GPS devices appeared on the market and neither free cartography software nor online mapping services were available.
I maintained and improved the code until year 2008. It is still now fully compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 10. More detailed information on the program can be found in the User's Manual
Some MyGPS screenshots are listed below:

I programmed in those years a lighter version (MyGPS_PDA) for handheld devices with PocketPC 2003and Windows Mobile 6.
Here are some screenshots: Map view, NMEA view, Coodinates view, Compass view.
However it is not anymore compatible with present smartphone operating systems.
