use the opacity slider at to right to swap between imagery and map (and note animation). An dont try with internet exploder.

I like it. How did you georeference it? Or did you just search it out on the map?

Just testing how google drive works as a image map storage.

I downloaded your map image, opened it with quickroute and exported your track as gpx. Then opened and drag-dropped your gpx to the top right drop area. That makes it move to the right place. Then I copied your google drive url (direct link version of it) to the "drop map image here" text field and pressed enter. Then just moved one place correctly, clicked it (clicking makes it rotation center) and rotated/scaled it with corner markers. "track link" button gives that link I pasted here. I have saved nothing there, image comes from your google drive account and track is encoded in that long link above, so it is stored hear at AP as a comment.

It did not work at first (some url encoding bug) but I fixed it. Never tried before using google drive links for this.

Anyway, it's pretty cool to compare KP map and google imagery.

It's definitely useful. Does it have features to compare routes?

Sure, drag-drop as many gpx files you like (I haven't tried more than about 250) to animate and compare. when animation is running mouse right click any place to mas start from there. But you can't have more than one track as url parameter (url would get too long) so to make link to presentation of several tracks you need to put gpx files in a zip and put that somewhere (like dropbox, I haven't tried google drive, I will test it one of these days...).

Some examples and ways to use it here:

Your Spain area is cool because good imagery an openness so one can actually see something and not just boring trees (like usually here where I live).

Nice. I'll see where I can use this in my training and my training group's stuff.

This area is good for satellite view of maps. Mappers can often get much of the process done from the computer before field-checking. However Finnish woods are often quite a bit more fun than Spanish woods.
