In the web editor, one used to be able to get a full page showing the elevation data of a trail - now it seems to be a subwindow parked at a fixed place on the map display of the trail. So we have lost some functionality (one can't save the elevation data separately). Is there any way of getting this back?
We are sorry but we don't understand what you mean by "we have lost some functionality (one can't save the elevation data separately)"?
Can you please explain it?
OK, let me explain futher. Last year, when I uploaded a trail, one of the display options was to show a separate page for elevation data. I found this useful, for example to use in a slide show or phot album about the trail.
This year, the only way I can find of displaying the elevation data for a trail is in a small window imposed on the trail map. It is of fixed size and position. This is clearly not so useful or flexible as a separate display.
I know there is now additional functionality, in that the display now compares the GPS measure of the elevation with the IGN database for the same path, but I am still sad to have lost my full-page display. Or perhaps it is there but I haven't found it?
The previous display for the elevation data was removed because of security and compatibility problems.
We will consider allowing users to show the new elevation profile in a separate window again in one of the next versions of the application.
Sorry for any inconvenient caused.
OK, thanks for listening. I look forward to a future version of your application with a more flexible elevation display. Meanwhile I am considering writing a small cross-platform app to show the elevation data from the raw GPX file, but of course I will not be able to access the corresponding IGN data.
