3D Route Builder is a powerful GPS editor for fine grain control over paths directly in Google Earth. These can then be either built from scratch or based on existing KML/KMZ, GPX or Garmin Training Center TCX. They can then be retraced at scalable real time speed.

  • Fine grain, live control over 3D paths in Google Earth - compliments the built-in Path Editor
  • Google Earth embedded in 3D Route Builder
  • Edit and build paths - modify or create from scratch accurate GPS and Garmin data sets with altitude and time-stamps
  • Import, edit or create time-stamps including selective re-scaling and nudging
  • Synchronize with video (e.g. helmet cam recordings)
  • Playback routes in real time with helicopter tracking
  • Get altitude and location data from Google Earth (Altitude Filler / Extract Altitude / Elevation)
  • Adjust altitude and location of one or more points in centimeter increments
  • View altitude profile against distance
  • View altitude profile against time (Plus Version Only)
  • Correct barometric drift
  • Smoothing of altitude profiles
  • Import KML/KMZ, GPX or Garmin Training Center TCX
  • Export data as GPS Exchange Format (GPX), Google Earth (KML, KMZ), Garmin (CRS or TCX), Salite (Mountain Pass profile format), (Customizable) Comma Separated Values, and Pro-Cycling Manager XML format
  • Edit and save your existing GPX, KML/KMZ, Garmin TCX files. Move points in location, altitude and time without altering your original file format (Plus Version Only)
  • Print data grid
  • Build and edit routes on planet Mars

Editor

The detail of a GPS or Google Earth (KML/KMZ) path is displayed in a grid. Per point the following details are shown: Name, Description, Longitude, Latitude, Altitude, Time, Distance from start, and Distance to, Gradient to, and Bearing to next point. Changes to points are immediately updated in Google Earth and all relative point information is updated in the grid.

 

3DRB_AdjustAltitude

Points can be added and inserted directly from Google Earth or from existing KML/KMZ, GPX or Garmin TCX files. Points can also be inserted between existing points by interpolation. The location of points can be modified by selecting one or more points and then using the keyboard to shift them in 3-dimensions. This process becomes almost addictive when used with a 3DConnexion SpaceNavigator.

The altitude of points can be updated either manually or from Google Earth - useful because Google Earth does not save the altitude of points in a path. Altitudes can also be smoothed using averaging and linear interpolation algorithms. 

The time-stamp of points can be edited or added and can be adjusted individually or in a group. Using time interpolation it is not necessary to have a time-stamp on all points.
