WANTED: GPX Tracks of long distance trips
i'm a software developer from germany and
just finished my trip from Munich to Vladivostok.
While riding i had hundrets of ideas what i could "code" for bikers like us.
I'm living in Bangkok now and finally started with this project i had in mind.
The "Motorcycle round the world planner"
It is basically just a map with Waypoints for RTW Bikers, it will show Bikerclubs, MustSees, Borders, Shipping Stories, bikerfriendly Lodging... ...AND Tracks of other people.
The intention of the project is to make the planning of a big trip easier, if you can see on an interactive map which borders are open, what places are there to visit, roads worth riding... it could really become a nice tool.
It's always helpful to see which trips(tracks) other people have done, for that reason i'm collecting GPX tracks.
So if you have done a bigger trip in the past and logged everything with your gps, i would be very happy if you could send me your tracks.
Things to consider:
later i also want to show the name of the persons who done this trip with a link to their website and contact information (only if you want this!)
If someone sees that another person went to an area where you are very unsure how to get there, what is needed... ...it would be good if you could contact them
The project is absolutely alpha by now, but if you want to have a look what the heck i'm talking about you might check Map - Round The World Planner for Bikers. Server is super crappy, give it some time to think
Alternatively here is a screenshot:
PS: gpx tracks get very small once zipped, please do so.
