During the development of Wikiloc (still ongoing) I've repeated some actions so many times that I eventually forgot that the first time I did those activities they were not so intuitive and easy to do.

I've received some emails from Wikiloc users asking for help. I've answered those emails the best I could but they've made me reconsider that some online help was needed. I've written a short document answering the most demanding questions, so check it out and let me know if you think there's something left. You can open the help page from the top right section in Wikiloc:

As always, I'd be glad to hear your opinion on this.

View your GPS locations in 3D

I've just added a button that generates a KML file (the Google Earth file format) of the location(s) that you're viewing on Wikiloc's map view. If you have Google Earth installed in your computer, you can open the downloaded file to view and 'fly around' the locations in 3D.

If the quality and detail of Google Earth's base imagery for the zone you're viewing is good, the results are pretty cool:
