Description : visualize, edit, convert and prune GPS data
Prune is an application for viewing, editing and converting coordinate
data from GPS systems. Basically it's a tool to let you play with your
GPS data after you get home from your trip.
It can load data from arbitrary text-based formats (for example, any
tab-separated or comma-separated file) or XML, or directly from a GPS
receiver. It can display the data (as map view using OpenStreetMap
images and as altitude profile), edit this data (for example delete
points and ranges, sort waypoints, compress tracks), and save the data
(in various text-based formats). It can also export data as a GPX
file, or as KML/KMZ for import into Google Earth, or send it to a GPS
Some example uses of Prune include cleaning up tracks by deleting
wayward points - either recorded by error or by unintended detours. It
can also be used to compare and combine tracks, convert to and from
various formats, compress tracks, export data to Google Earth, or to
analyse data to calculate distances, altitudes and so on.
Furthermore, Prune is able to display the tracks in 3d format and
lets you spin the model round to look at it from various directions.
You can also export the model in POV format so that you can render a
nice picture using Povray. You can also create charts of altitudes or
speeds. It can also load Jpegs and read their coordinates from the
EXIF tags, and export thumbnails of these photos to Kmz format so that
they appear as popups in Google Earth. If your photos don't have
coordinates yet, Prune can be used to connect them (either manually or
automatically using the photo timestamps) to data points, and write
these coordinates into the EXIF tags.

surname. I contacted upstream in this regard.
