GPX files and more


#1

The summit sites present many a good track for GPS devices.

What if there is none?

A very useful and comfortable tool

  • to mark out a track on a map

  • to generate the GPX (KML) file of the track

  • to show an elevating profile (altitude, distance, overall duration) of the track (printable)

  • to print a map with the track on it

can be found there: https://www.outdooractive.com/de/routeplanner/

HI Alfred

You can also create tracks within the SMP itself using the DRAW TRACK choice in the SMP tracks page. It works well and the track can be saved as a draft (public viewing) and then replaced with your walked track when you have completed the activation. I favour the OT Maps in the SMP.

Hi Phil,

Thanks for your tips but somehow I am unable to log in to SMP (as well as SOTAwatch3) and without access I cannot draw tracks in SMP.

(System says “Invalid username or password” but I am sure both of them are correct.)

For first activation and unknown terrain I use https://opoto.github.io/wtracks/ up right on site you can change maps… make the path and save to gps device …
clik on distance - elevation graf etc…

Hi Alfred, do you realise that the new systems that will eventually come under a single sign on system, (SW3, SMP, new DB GUI, SOTA public website etc) use a different account to that on other web servers such as this reflector. Did you set up a new account on a system on the sota.org.uk domain yet?

Well, login is no problem at all to SOTA Home, SOTAwatch2 and SOTA Reflector but it is impossible to Database, SOTAwatch3 and SOTA Mapping.

I have to admit that I have been banned in the past. Maybe this causes the problem…

I’ll reset those accounts when I get back to VK in about 20 hours

No, you asked us to remove your accounts. There’s a difference.

I asked the MT to delete my account completely. Completely means to me: The system doesn´t know me, I can return whenever I want.

Well, I do not want to warm up this old story. I´ll try again within the next days. Thanks in advance.
