GridMapper by WG7J


Posted: October 11th, 2012 under Hamradio.

A week ago, I happened to stumble across an interesting website. WG7J have written something he calls GridMapper. Basically it takes your adif-file and makes a Google Maps or Google Earth gridmap overlay for you. Take a look here to test it out.

Below is an example from my log. When I first tried it, it would not accept my DXBase adif-file. I exported a file from DXKeeper instead, which then worked without any trouble.

The picture on the left is from Google Earth, and the picture on the right is from Google Maps. Now if only we could have a logprogram or a standalone application implementing something like this, I would be very happy. Not that there is anything wrong with this, it’s just a personal preference.

Thank you WG7J for programming this and offering it for free!

You’re welcome.
If you email me a adif file from dxbase, i’ll check to see why that didn’t parse…
