Community Applications

Applications software

Cumulus
GPS software for glider pilots (and pilots in general), has a port for Qtopia and pulls (world) maps from the KFLog flight planner project. I think someone has put a project like this on the projects website.

Pyroute
is a routing program written in Python by Ojw, and a mobile phone GUI for maps, GPS, and routing.

Gosmore
is a routing and viewer of OSM XML data such as the planet.osm.

GPS Sight,
a popular Openmoko project under LGPL.

GPS-Trail
a simple trail logger.

Navit
a car navigation system with routing engine.

Orrery,
an Openmoko project for displaying the night sky.

qpegps
qtopia (arm PDA) based map viewer with gps features

QMapControl
Qtopia based mapping widget. Displays maps and custom data, also other widgets can be bound to coordinates. GPS parser for the gllin output included.

TangoGPS
mapping program. Downloads maps on demand and caches them, very efficient. Works very well.

Use cases

  • I want to look at maps.
  • I want to be able to prepare data and load my own maps.
  • I want to load map data in a WKB (well known binary) format such as shapefiles.
  • I want to go somewhere; please tell me how to get there. Routing.
  • I want to help with the Openstreetmap project by collecting data.
  • I want to use Openstreetmap data in a map viewer.
  • I want to use the smartphone GPS to go Geocaching
  • I want the GPS to update profile settings based on my location. Example, mute the phone ringer when I am at work.
  • I want to log GPS data for later analysis. GPS Data Logger
  • I want to collect GPS data for scientific field work (forestry, biology, etc)
