Google Earth is a map viewer that provides an easy way to view GPS data files. This tutorial will teach you how to view GPX-formatted GPS data in Google Earth.
This tutorial will teach you how to use an iOS device to log GPS data and export it to a GPX file (which can then be used by mapping software).
GPX (GPS Exchange format) and KML (Keyhole Markup Language) are both file types used to store GPS data. This tutorial will teach you how to convert between GPX and KML (in both directions) using GPS Visualizer.
This tutorial will teach you how to record route data on a Garmin automotive GPS and extract it into a GPX file (which can then be used by mapping software).
A mountainous airport with the first backtaxi that I can remember.
For my 2010s Decade in Travel post, I manually created a heatmap showing the parts of the United States and world where I’d spent the most time traveling. Since I’ve been playing around with QGIS recently, I went ahead and used it to create a proper heatmap of my travels.
Using directed graphs to show my busiest routes and what airlines I used.
The Baltimore airport expanded terminal E, so I updated my terminal silhouette.
While I’m fortunate that my health and finances have both been well during the COVID-19 crisis, this has been the longest time I’ve been home for this long since I started traveling for work in 2009. I created a chart and some statistics about this time spent at home.
I’ve made a small update to Detroit’s airport – a few of the piers on the old North Terminal were removed, so I changed my silhouette to match.
