In my last blog post , we created a created a 500 km continuous line representing a ski route across Nordryggen in Norway. I need to transfer this route to my Garmin GPS so I can use it for navigation while skiing. How can it be done? Cross-country skiing i...

I am amazed at your 3D mapping work but unfortunately I can't follow it technically. Do you know of some kind soul (or a paid service) that can provide me a 3D map of a region if I provide the 4 corners of the domain with the GPS coordinates? I tried to use Google Earth Pro and couldn't make proper use of it either. Oh well!

Geotagging photos using GPS tracks, ExifTool and Picasa
I take a lot of photos while trekking, and most of the time I'm also carrying a GPS with me. As my camera don't have a built-in GPS, my photos are not geotagged while shooting. Luckily, this is an easy task if you've kept your GPS logs from the trip.  I'm s...

I use my phone to record GPS data. But considering a dedicated GPS for the long treks.
Then I just load the gpx file into lightroom and auto map them to the images.

Making a real time travel map
I had to quit my trip form Oslo to Bergen already on day three - and I have to wait until August 2015 for a second try. I still got time to gain some experience in real time tracking - and mapping. Based on this experience I've made a new version of my live...

I’m currently doing my last preparations for a 25 days skiing trip across Nordryggen in Norway. It will of course depend on weather, snow conditions and blisters, but hopefully the conditions will be bearable. Norway has a gr...

3D terrains with Cesium
Previously, I’ve used three.js to create 3D terrain maps in the browser ( 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 ). It worked great for smaller areas, but three.js doesn’t have built-in support for tiling and advanced LOD algorithms needed to render large terrains. So I dec...

Hi! I'm using Leaflet.markercluster, and I don't know if there is an OpenLaters 3.0 equivalent.

Thanks for the tip about the Okavango trip! I'll have a closer look. So far, my satellite communication is restricted to my SPOT messenger.
