I am a PhD student in the area of Emergent Computing. My area of interest is in researching the route planning strategies of cyclists.
In order to do this research the cyclists that I am studying will create GPS data as they cycle around Edinburgh and then either upload it to a site such as trailfinder or similar or email it to me.
In order for me to use this to analyse this GPX file I need to convert it to a list of nodes that they have visited.
I could write a piece of software that looks at all the latitude/longitude points in the GPX file and then searches for a node within a set radius, say 5m so that I can produce this list of nodes.
However does any code like this already exist? If so it would be good to reuse it…
