OpenStreetMap

GPS tool used

Posted by Spancilhill on 13 March 2010 in English (English)

I'm using a rather awkward set of tools/software to edit OpenStreetMap.

Using a Samsung H1 smartphone with GPS and the app honeylocation from http://honeylocation.com, I record my tracks and upload them via WLAN to the Internet on the same webpage. From there, I download them as KMZ-files (Google Earth file format) and prune them using PRUNE (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Prune) and export the data in GPX files. Using JOSM, I display my GPS data and upload changes/additions etc. to OSM.

I wish there was an easier way to create my GPS traces on that phone! :(

Hello, you can use Gpsmid to record your tracks. And export them directly in GPX files.

Thank you so much! This was the best software advice I have received in ages! This program is just brilliant and works like a treat on my phone!

Honey Location has introduced exporting data to the GPX files.
They've improved a lot Honey Location since last year.
I'm using it and it works fine.
