I am writing all my own code for the user interface and other functions, which is big project. My app and website(s) are free, but they are not open source. Sorry, I am not interested in sharing the code. Anyway, I don't think this is what you want. My main interest is in making maps, specifically maps of my own region and the app is an easy way to share them without the user needing to download or install anything. In the future, I hope to reach a wider audience with maps of other areas.
Good luck with your project!
Thanks, those look fine. However, this is not at all comparable to the examples I gave. The aerial image is zoomed way out. Look at the distance scale in the example I posted above - click on it to see full size. If you zoom in that far on your track, I'm sure you will see very noticeable variations between tracks recorded at different times.
I certainly agree that the tracks in your example are more than adequate for someone who wants to follow a road on a hike. That is not the same as making an accurate map of a small area that looks good when zoomed way in.
Again, nothing against the eTrex. I just think there are better tools for the project that @xarielle wants to undertake.
I made an old post about this issue at GPSFileDepot, including some screenshots
The pink lines in this image are the high resolution trails. The blue lines are the result of converting them to a Garmin .img file. To be fair, these have been zoomed in extemely close, but that is what I wanted for my map
I'm completely confused by Garmin's traffic options. What is "digital traffic"? Is that the same as "HD traffic"?
LIDAR imagery is what you really need for finding old home sites, Garmin does not offer that. I have made quite a few maps based on LIDAR and am building a new site where you can view it in three dimensions and tweak the settings to reveal hidden details. I only cover my own region however, it involves a lot of data and a lot of time to make this kind of map. Not aware of anybody else who offers maps like this, but have not really looked either
