Digital Geography

GPX overview: An R function to create an overview of your .gpx files (using leaflet and RgoogleMaps)

Why GPX? For what? It's convenient to record tracks of your hiking/field trips with the GPS of your smartphone, tablet or just GPS as .gpx files. You can use them to georeference your pictures (for example with the great georefencer of Digikam) or use them for any kind of mapping purpose. I'm mainly using Maverick (and sometimes the Offline Logger ) to do that, Maverick creates files named with the form "2015-08-26 @ 11-31-59.gpx", therefore I'm quickly collecting a large amount of such files.
