A few highlights of what’s new:
* Rich flight analysis and visualization
Upload your IGC flight tracks to re-play, analyze and view them in 2d and 3d, and to share them with others.
* High-resolution mobile tracking
Spectators can live-play and visualize your flights in real-time when you use GlideTrack mobile tracker.
* Social network for gliding
Share tracks, post comments, like / dislike flights, get notified when your friends fly.
As before, GlidePort requires a current version of the Chrome, Firefox or Safari web browser on desktop/laptop computers, it does not work with Windows Explorer.
Here is a short intro video:
Here is a longer video of a more in-depth demo:
PS. Gliding software/hardware vendors are invited to integrate with GlidePort.aero! GlidePort provides an open API which allows any software to send live tracking data over mobile or satellite. The GlideTrack mobile tracker app is a simple example of how the API can be used. The API documentation and the GlideTrack source code are available at http://github.com/glideport/GlideTrack
PPS. The old version of GlidePort will continue to be available at http://gp23.glideport.aero for a short while longer until it is retired.
