comment How do various JavaScript mapping libraries compare?
Just an update on my answer; Polymaps hasn't had any development in a couple of years. It's still an interesting library with some unique abilities, but I wouldn't use it for a new project. These days I'm using Leaflet.

Not via the GeoLocation API, no. Also it doesn't provide GPS-specific information like satellite signal strength, etc.

comment Is there a good GPS track analysis library?
Google just announced a Tracks API I'm mentioning here for completeness. It looks useful but in a different direction than I'm looking for; more about breadcrumbs and geofences.

comment Is there a good GPS track analysis library?
After a week or two and a bounty I think the answer to my question here is "no, there is no library for GPX track processing". Lots of applications and code, but no general purpose tool. It's helpful to know that. For me the way forward is to write some PostGIS code that works with the schema created by ogr2ogr's GPX import. That schema contains both a simple LineString for the track and a table of points with timestamps for the time dimension.
