foxtrotGPS is a map and GPS application. By default, it uses maps from OpenStreetMap. The available features include downloading and displaying tiled maps, recording GPS tracks, automatic map centering, storing points of interest, geocoding photos, setting waypoints, monitoring heartrate via Bluetooth, planning travel routes and finding travel routes using external services on the Internet based on OpenStreetMap.

GPSBabel converts waypoints, tracks, and routes from one format to another, whether that format is a common mapping format like Delorme, Streets and Trips, or even a serial upload or download to a GPS unit such as those from Garmin and Magellan.

GPSBabel supports dozens of data formats and will be useful for tasks such as geocaching, mapping, and converting from one GPS unit to another. Among the interesting formats it supports are several GPS devices via a serial link, various PDA-based mapping programs, and various Geocaching data formats.

Among others GPSBabel supports the following formats:

Cetus, CoPilot Flight Planner, CSV, Custom CSV, Delorme Street Atlas, Delorme Street Atlas 2004 Plus, Delorms GPS Log, Delorme routes, DNA, EasyGPS Binary, Fugawi, Garmin serial, Geocaching.com loc, GeocachingDB, Geoniche, GPilotS, GPSDrive, GPSman, GPSPilot, gpsutil, GPX, Holux, IGC, Magellan serial, Magellan SD, Magellan Navigator Companion, Mapopolis.Com Mapconverter, Mapsend, Mapsource, Maptech, Microsoft Streets and Trips, Navicache, Netstumbler, NIMA/GNIS Geographic Names, NMEA sentences, OziExplorer, PalmDoc, PCX5, PocketStreets 2002 Pushpin, PSITrex, Quovadis, Tab-separated data, Tiger, TopoMapPro, Topo by National Geographic, xcsv, xmap, xmapwpt.

The gpsd service daemon can monitor one or more GPS devices connected to a host computer, making all data on the location and movements of the sensors available to be queried on TCP port 2947.

With gpsd, multiple GPS client applications can share access to devices without contention or loss of data. Also, gpsd responds to queries with a format that is substantially easier to parse than the different standards emitted by GPS devices.

MTKBabel is a command line program to operate the i-Blue 747 GPS data logger. It should work also with other GPS devices based on the MediaTek MTK chipset. For instance the Holux M-241 GPS data logger, the Holux M-1200E, as well as the 747 A+ GPS Trip Recorder, are also known to work.

The main features are:

  • Command line interface
  • Save data log in GPX and raw binary format
  • If required retrieve all the data, also the old one being overlapped
  • Change logging criteria: time, distance, speed
  • Change log format
  • START/STOP logging
  • Set OVERLAP or STOP method on memory full
  • Erase the internal memory

Navit is a car navigation system with routing engine.

Its modular design is capable of using vector maps of various formats for routing and rendering of the displayed map. It's even possible to use multiple maps at a time.

The GTK+ or SDL user interfaces are designed to work well with touch screen displays. Points of Interest of various formats are displayed on the map.

The current vehicle position is either read from gpsd or directly from NMEA GPS sensors.

The routing engine not only calculates an optimal route to your destination, but also generates directions and even speaks to you using speech-dispatcher.

The Debian packaging for navit doesn't provide any map. To see, where you can get maps from, see http://wiki.navit-project.org/index.php/Main_Page#Maps.

OBDII is a standard for getting diagnostic information from your car. The main tool, obdgpslogger, is a command-line tool to log that data, with your gps position, to a sqlite database. Provided alongside are various tools used to convert logs to formats such as CSV or Google Earth KML. Also contained in the package is an OBDII and ELM327 simulator, obdsim, that uses plugins to generate data.

OpenBmap is a free and open map of wireless communicating objects (e.g. cellular antenna, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth). It provides tools to mutualize data, create and access this map.

The purpose of this software is to log GSM data, together with GPS coordinate. The result can be sent to their website, in order to build a free database. They store GPS quality, speed, GSM signal strength, etc. to keep a high quality of data.

This package provides a versatile tool for GPS maps in GeoTiff format as well as Garmin's img vector map format. QLandkarteGT is the successor of QLandkarte. Among various improvements (e.g. 2D/3D map rendering and reduced resource demands) the major difference is its device-independent architecture.

Additionally, QLandkarteGT serves as a frontend to the GDAL tools, to make georeferencing of scanned maps feasible for users. In contrast to similar tools (e.g. QGis) its straightforward interface is especially suited for non-scientific users.

gpscorrelate fills EXIF (Exchangeable Image File Format) fields of digital photos related to GPS (Global Positioning System) information (e.g.: GPSLatitude, GPSLongitude, GPSAltitude, ...). The act of filling those fields is referred to as "correlation".

Inputs of the correlation process are a set of JPEG images and GPS data encoded in GPX (GPS Exchange Format) format.

If GPS data are available at the precise moment the photo was taken (with a 1-second granularity) the GPS data are stored unmodified in EXIF fields. If they are not linear interpolation of GPS data available at moments before and after the photo was taken can be used.

Both a command line tool (package gpscorrelate) and a GTK+ graphical user interface for it (package gpscorrelate-gui) are provided.

This package contains the command line tool and the documentation in HTML format.

Navit is a car navigation system with routing engine.

Its modular design is capable of using vector maps of various formats for routing and rendering of the displayed map. It's even possible to use multiple maps at a time.

The GTK+ or SDL user interfaces are designed to work well with touch screen displays. Points of Interest of various formats are displayed on the map.

The current vehicle position is either read from gpsd or directly from NMEA GPS sensors.

The routing engine not only calculates an optimal route to your destination, but also generates directions and even speaks to you using speech-dispatcher.

This package contains the graphic gtk-drawing-area plugin to use with GTK+ aware GUIs plugins.

Viking aims to be easy to use, yet powerful in accomplishing a wide variety of GPS related tasks. It uses a hierarchical layering system to organize GPS data, maps, and other layer types with spatial data, such as coordinate lines.

Some of the things you can use Viking for are:

  • Uploading and downloading waypoints, tracks to/from GPS.
  • Realtime GPS tracking and track recording.
  • Import and export of gpx files.
  • Preparing tracks and waypoints for trips using maps from services such as OpenStreetmap and Terraserver. You only need to upload the data to your GPS before you leave. The maps together with your tracks and waypoints can also be printed and used during the trip.
  • After trips, tracks and waypoints from GPS can be downloaded, stored, managed and reused in later trips.
  • Analyzing OHV and hiking trips, understanding where you went and how far you were from something.
  • Making waypoints and tracks to follow to easily get someplace you've never been before or don't have GPS data for but Terraserver maps exist for it.
  • Making maps with coordinate lines.
  • Analyzing speed at different places, adding waypoints where you forgot to mark one but did slow down or stop.
