3d GPS mapping

Postby RomeUtah » Thu Jan 28, 2021 4:19 pm

Hey all,
Has anyone overlayed gps tracking with glides onto a map or know how to do it free? It would be fun to see the flights off hills and general paths when snow kiting.

Surfr app is direct competitor to WooSports, but Surfr also does GPS tracking and live streaming which probably your friends and family can attach to for friendly competition and maybe safety too. Surfr calculates also jump height by IMU. It is tuned for water but maybe works in mountains too.

Kitetracker is another live tracking app. It does not have IMU based jump height as Surfr has. Maybe it has GPS height but that is quite inaccurate and when compared to mountain topology model I doubt that you get proper view of your glides.

Recon Instruments GPS hud also records track and has jumps, but unfortunately jumps only worked on freefall. And company is out of business, or under Intel hood. Don't know if anything is sold anymore.
