How this works

Getting the track

I have 3 sources of track data.

  1. Online Mobile GPS Using OsmAnd's [ http://osmand.net/ ] online tracking to log directly into a non-navigable URL which populates a MySQL table.
  2. Offline Mobile GPS Also using OsmAnd log to a local GPX file [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPS_Exchange_Format ] then upload and import into MySQL.
  3. Intercepting JSON format data from the car's tracking app an importing this into MySQL.

Plotting the track

In October 2018 I dumped Google maps in favour of Bing maps in response to their requirement to register AND add card details to get an API key.
