Viking for GPS track analyzing

I knew few web services that analyzed GPS data, to make pretty graphs of speed during time, etc... and long thought that I'll need to write something like that.

Well, it turns out, someone else already did, and result is called Viking. It can do openstreetmap/openaerialmap (SuSE version), and it can do transparency, so results look pretty well.

On a related note, I hacked tangogps a bit, and found out that POIs are indeed pretty easy to import with some sql scripting.

gpsbabel -i gpx -o csv $1 /tmp/delme.csv
( while IFS=, read A B C; do
        echo -n 'INSERT INTO "poi" VALUES ('
        echo "'628450940673161107', $A, $B, 1.0, 0.0, 0.0, '$C', '', 3.0, 0.0, NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL);"
) < /tmp/delme.csv | sqlite3 ~/.tangogps/poi.db
