The GPS Visualizer Atlas

Permanent links to your on-line GPS data

In the past, if you wanted to save a Google Map created with GPS Visualizer, you had to upload the HTML file to your Web site, which can be a bit of a hassle. But now, thanks to a new feature called The Atlas, GPS Visualizer will host the map for you; all you have to do is save the appropriate link, which you can post in your blog, share with your friends, etc.

Of course, you still need to store the data on-line somewhere so that the GPS Visualizer map can access it. But even if you don't have your own Web site, there are a few possible solutions:

  • You can store any kind of files, including GPX, in the Public folder of a DropBox account. (Just make sure that you copy the "public link" of the file itself, and not the page that includes a download link.)
  • With a Google Sites account, you can store raw data files using the "File Cabinet" upload template.
  • If your data is stored in "My Maps" at, just give The Atlas the URL of your map (via the "Link" link in Google Maps), and GPS Visualizer will know what to do with it.

To try it out, simply paste the URL of an on-line GPS file into the form below. The file can in be any format that can be read by GPS Visualizer; .gpx, .kml, .kmz, .tcx, plain text (.csv), Google Maps, Google Spreadsheets, and many others are supported.
