Managing GPS data with ActivityDiary
ActivityDiary creates a handy digital diary by mapping your workout and route GPS data.
Where exactly did today's hike take you? What distance do you jog every morning? How many miles have you put behind you since you left training camp? If these or similar questions sound familiar, you are not a newcomer to the topic of GPS in training programs.
In today's age of mobile navigation, many devices either include a GPS module or can have a receiver added without much difficulty. Besides navigation to specific target points, the accompanying software typically lets you collect the data in a kind of digital diary and add your own details.
However, tools for evaluating or managing routes are still fairly rare. Individual websites  or programs (such as Google Earth, Marble) will let you visualize routes you have mapped by GPS data, but they do not allow you to manage or analyze multiple routes. Functions for saving user-definable details, such as route descriptions, weather, surface conditions, and photos, would also be useful. And if you actually need to visualize and manage routes on the move, you need a solution that works offline – which is where ActivityDiary  enters the picture.
