It uses the OpenLayers API to show the track on a variety of selectable map layers from OpenStreetMap or Google Maps(tm).
If you go hiking or cycling with your GPS, and want an easy way to publish your tracks on your site, then this is for you!
All you need to have your track or route shown in your article or module is to write this code into the text:
(you must use curly braces instead of the round ones)
Track and map display are highly customizable, and there is a Parameter Preset feature that can keep your custom settings organized easily.
The Plugin can parse the GPX file to extract all kinds of statistical data that you can show along with the map, as well as render SVG diagrams of the altitude and travel speed of your trip.
Since V1.2 GPXTrackMap fully supports Joomla 3.x!
It's quick and easy to implement. The documentation is good and the support is excellent. To the developer: keep it up that way!
I use it to show my hiking tracks, illustrated with custom waypoint symbols, showing links and pictures, and it all works like a charm!
More important even, it is one of the few extensions that does NOT use Google Maps. It can be suspected that one day Google will decide that we have to pay for their service, but the OpenStreetMaps used in this plugin are so much better for evryone interested in outdoor activities.
Last but not least, the designer is very responsive.
Hi, and thanks for your kind review. As for imperial measurements: They are already available, and you can use them by editing the Layout Template files (I have just updated the documentation on that, to make it more clear how to use this feature). See Documentation -> Options Reference -> Layout Templates on the Plugin homepage for more.
