GPXTrackMap Plugin

GPXTrackMap is a content plugin to display GPS tracks in the common GPX format on interactive maps in articles.

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:

(gpxtrackmap)mytrack.gpx(/gpxtrackmap)

(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!

A great way to employ the free Open Street Maps on your site. For basic use, it is not too difficult to implement. The documentation is thorough and there are many possibilities to adapt and transform this plugin. And most important: it loads fast! So thank you for this marvellous plugin!

This is an amazing tool to show and download gpx tracks. I tested it for OSM based maps and I didn't find a plugin like this. It has many options to adjust the views.
Thanks to Frank Ingermann for his work and the sharing.

Finally an OpenStreetMap extension which is not depending upon the Google api's.
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!

This is a simple but very powerful Mapping extension. It has Height and speed profiles and is very much configurable.
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.
Certainly recommended!

I admit this extension was better than I expected. Not saying I had low expectations either. I love how you can adjust the hill shading, set the default map type to Google Terrain (Physical), and it allows one to download the track. It would be nice if the track information had a way to show imperial measurements (I personally like metric better but my users would rather have imperial). Thanks for creating this nice extension. Well done.
Owner's reply

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.

Enjoy!
