I'm trying to take a bunch of gps tracks of mountain bike rides and turn this in to a trail map. I want a single track for each trail.
I'm looking for an editor that will allow me to select a segment of a track by clicking the start of the segment, clicking the end of the segment and the editor will select the segment between these points. I'm not a big fan of dragging a box or polygon around my segments since they tend to wind around and sometimes overlap.
Ideally, the editor would be able to display multiple tracks at a same time. I've already got qgis and arcgis available, so if I can select in the method I prefer using that software, I'm fine with that.
Currently, I've just been using the website ridewithgps to cut these segments out, but that requires a lot of saving as separate routes and exporting chunks. However, all I have to do to select the segment I want is click on the elevation profile at the start point, and then at the end point and copy that segment to a new route which I then export as a gpx file.
Is there any desktop software for mac or pc that will allow me to cut out segments in this fashion or a way to do this in qgis or arcgis?
I hover over the trail or the elevation profile and click the start point, then I click the end point on either the trail or the elevation profile and that segment (not including any overlapping portions) is selected. I can tweak the extents by sliding the selection on the elevation profile and then I can then copy that to a separate track. Most of the time it takes me 4 clicks or less to break out one track. I'm looking for similar behavior or another process that works quickly in a desktop app.
Ultimately, I'm going to upload the segments I copy as individual trails on mtbproject and use for making printed maps with labels for each segment.
