Map and Elevation Profile generation

Instructions on how to add maps & elevation profiles based on a .GPX file.

Use   http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/elevation to add the Elevation data as Anquet OMN GPX files does not contain it!

This is output to  http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/convert?output_elevation

Note that gpsvisualizer.com’s download file after conversion, does not seem to contain the elevation data. Better to copy the Window contents and make your own .GPX (it is just a simple .XML file, so notepad++ can be used to copy to).

Use the WP GPX Plug-in to generate required short code. Copy short code to the approp. place in the Post – Dashboard – WP GPX Maps.

 

To add a Grid Reference link to StreetMap

use http://www.streetmap.co.uk/idcontactform.srf&src=idmapkey.htm and enter the Landranger ref, eg NO35456189.

This will give a URL of ‘http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?x=335455&y=761895&z=0&sv=no35456189&st=5&searchp=ids.srf’

Change the ‘=0‘ to ‘=4‘ to give 1:50,000 scaling.
