I want to show you a project of mine, Route Visualizer
. With this program you can plot your routes (from kml and gpx files) for talks, presentations, ... onto a map. The result may look similiar to this one:Example image
This image was created using tiles from maps-for-free.com
with zoom value 8, saved as jpg and reduced to a width of 800 px for the forum (therefore some image artifacts). The original (full size) image is available here
(1792 px x 1024 px, 641 KB).
Selection of a higher zoom value increases the image size. The result saved as jpg is not at a good quality. However, you can save as png etc. as well, which of course increases image size (e.g. the example image would have several MB as a png file).
Some more features:
- Available in english
- No installation needed
- Change route width and color
- Save as jpg, png, bmp, gif and tif
- Instructions on how to use tiles from maps-for-free.com
- Save map in one image or every layer in one image, to simplify further processing
You can download Route Visualizer
. There you can also find further information
I'm looking forward to getting some feedback from you. The first set up is a bit more complicated, because you have to download the tiles first. Instructions are available here
. If questions occur, I'm happy to help you out.
