As hinted in the comments in my last post, I’ve cleaned up my 3D elevation code and released it as a project, source and all. Go check out Elevation to grab Mac and Windows executables, or hit up GitHub to grab the source.
This project was a too-perfect alignment of things relevant to my interests. I got a chance to really stretch my legs with Processing, had an excuse to tinker with GitHub finally, spent some serious design time in Photoshop thinking through the site and app UI visuals, designed a high-res app icon, got to play with mapping and GPS software, and it all gave me the motivation to go out and pedal around this beautiful city to create my route data in the first place. Spending a month coding while racking up over 400km on the bike seems like a fairly healthy work/play balance.
And happily there’s plenty of fodder in here for future posts, from parsing differing XML formats to building a functional GUI. More on those soon.
