    How did you get your height data?
    Did you run it through a program like BTBLofty or 3D Route Builder?

    thx Lee...

    lee knight, yeah the heights were a great problem from GE... mostly missing or not really true...
    Ehrlec, the higher res you were talking about, where can i get thet from?
    The Track is really beautiful, i love to cruise on it, almost every weekend in summer cause im living next door to it...

    i was trying at their website https://platform-us.terrainondemand.com/Store/MapShop.aspx?GeoLocation=EMEA&StartupPlanName=Basic
    but may i've something wrong with the kml export, cause when im trying to upload the kml file i get that error
    "Failed to upload or process file "Route333333.kml". Failed to calculate custom geometry area size..."

    Well i guess ill redo the path on my own... i'll mount a cam on my car and ill redo the route and then trying to rebuild it as good as i can. If you. ehrlec still want to upload me some "default_starter_track_for_dummies_like_me" it would be awesome! thanks a lot


    btw: here a link of the kml file without altitude parameters

    I was looking into measuring one's altitude, and came across this gadget:
    http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/WTI0001P?I=LXF551&P=8
    This is for measuring the altitude of a rocket or other flying object, but you could use it for your road. The actual altitude isn't important, just the difference between any two points. You can use a good map to work out the horizontal distance between the points, and you can use the gadget to measure the angle between them. Then it's just a matter of trigonometry. tan_theta = opp/adj

    You'll have to take your own height into account, because you'd be measuring the angle from the ground + your eye level, but in theory it would work.
