Morocco info: tracks, pics, story and a lot more

Hi all,

I have spent some time developing a new travel report format. Not the usual pictures & story but an intercactive approach with downloadable tracklogs, maps, pictures, stories and a lot more. All is GPS based! Don't forget to press the menu button ;-)

Your feedback (the good and the bad) is highly appreciated.

Cheers and have fun on

i-spog --- explore my trip

Demito

Demito,

It's pretty cool! I also have the tracks, geo-referenced pics but sadly no skills. Any hints how to do it? A CMS, maybe?

Genius ! Best web site I've ever seen about seeing Morocco by bike and I waste/spend an awful lot of time dreaming online.

On another matter, if I download the GPX files to my computer, can I then just chuck them straight into my Zumo as a route

Congrats again

.gpx is a GPS file interchange standard that can be dealth with by numerous softwares. If you use a zumo, load the .gpx in Mapsource and chuck it straight into your unit! I have a littleproject running on getting it straight into a garmin unit from the website, but that is not ready yet...

Glad you like the site!

Tom

Hi Tom,

Really great website you made. I enjoyed watching your pictures. Nice with the background music. Watching your travel stories is very bad for me. I just returned from a trip to Denmark but after seing your site, I want to ride again............ :-)

A quick question:
