[Plugin: XML Google Maps] Feature Request - Draw out Route (7 posts)

    Hello dschuesae,

    This is an awsome plugin and is almost exactly what I am looking for. One thing that I would like to see and suggest is a way to have it draw out the gpx track and show the specs of the track (distance, speed, time). I know it is possible as I saw it done on a few other sites and have implemented it on a basic scale. But I am new to WordPress and haven't looked through all the module creation tools yet. I took a quick peek at your files to see if I could integrate the other tools, but my PHP skill is not that strong.

    Here are the two sites where I originally found out about drawing out the routes on Google Maps.

    Awsome. Looking forward to it. Let me know if you need any help in testing or debugging, although I'm sure you've got it handled.

    I am also going to try this weekend and see if I can't figure it out.

    Thanks again.

    Hi again
    I began with some a new chart type "speed profile". If you would like to test it, download it from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/xml-google-maps.zip. The new parameters are introduced in the Plugin Dev History (readme.txt). I've not yet finished the checkpoint table...

    Give me feedback... Thx

    just updated my version and tested. Looks like it is working OK. You can check it here.

    Looks good. Not exactly what I had in mind, but it does the job. And a fast turnaround time too. Great job!!

    Now try to add checkpoints with parameters (gpxcheckpointinterval=1). This will be for future use with a checkpoint table...
