Smooth GPS track graph

One of the most used features of the old Trackprofiler was GPS track graph smoothing. Now Trackrofiler2 has it too.

Suppose, for example, that your GPS had it wrong while recording elevations. Your typical graph will have errors like...

Now, all you have to do is click "Smooth" to correct those errors. The lower graph is the result after the "smoothing" process.

Split/join/delete track segments

One of the biggest problem I have with my GPS (better said with the way I use it) is that I forgot to turn it off when finish my mountain/MTB track. I put my things in my car and drive home. The GPS is still turned on and it records all my way home. But I don't want that.

OK, there are ways to edit GPS tracks. There are many offline track editors that let you do that.

But now there is one more online track editor -- the new version Trackprofiler.

The full list of options is now:

  • Upload and merge tracks
  • Smooth track profile graph
  • Upload, automatic position and edit images
  • Split parts of track, join track segments, delete parts of track
  • Add waypoints
  • Change waypoints description and icons
  • Show descriptions on map/graph
  • Show your location on graph/map
In italic are new and enhanced features from the last upgrade.
