Projects / Viking


Viking is a GTK2-based GPS data editor and viewer. It can download and show OpenStreetMaps, Terraserver, and other maps, import and draw tracks and waypoints over them, add coordinate lines, make new tracks and waypoints, hide different things, and more. It uses a hierarchical layering system to organize GPS data, maps, and other layer types with spatial data (such as coordinate lines).

Nice for mapping my bike trips
This is just what I was looking for - a nice, simple program that can take my GPS data and plot it on a map. Since I've been in the habit of collecting my GPS bike trip data, and now I can plot it, I have a nice visual record of everything.

Despite its version number, it's very stable and usable.
