At least for the time being.
Unlike many map editors this map editor does not attempt to manage map files. It can import any number of existing kml, kmz and gpx map files by uploading from the user’s computer. And it saves the user’s work by exporting as a download to the user’s computer. This eliminates any questions about a licence to use map files like Adventure Cycling Association has as a provider of this service.
It has features comparable to other editors like Ride With GPS (RWGPS) and in many cases is more robust in terms of pure map editing for the touring cyclist, its intended audience.
For user Adventure Cycling Association’s GPX files the map editor solves a few common issues.
- changing the direction of travel.
- converting the <rte> route to <trk> tracks. This is an export option.
- use Google Direction Service to render a “follow the road” tracking with cue sheet generation.

It would be appreciated that any issues be reported using the Guestbook. Thanks
