Track & Waypoint Browser

PhotoLinker provides a GPS track database and browser. Saved track files can be imported from the computer or downloaded directly from a GPS receiver. Tracks are automatically cataloged by date and displayed on an interactive map where the size and color can be adjusted. The track browser handles years of data and millions of track points.

Loading Tracks

You can load your GPX, TCX or NMEA log files by dragging them into PhotoLinker and dropping them onto the map or image browser. Tracks may need to be downloaded directly from some GPS receivers.

Zoom to Fit

By default PhotoLinker will automatically zoom the map to fit a recently added track. This behavior can be adjusted in PhotoLinker's Preferences under the Maps tab.

The magnifying glass icon in the Track & Waypoint Browser can be used to zoom the map to fit the current track selection.

Right-clicking (control-clicking) on a source list also provides and option to Zoom To Fit.
