bordermarkers of the
Pyrenees : print your own maps
|It's easy to print your own - custom made - maps with the GRPdesBF and the bordermarkers on them.
In general: a combination of Google Earth-prints with French IGN-prints
is perfect. But there are more options and sometimes such an alternative is better. It's you who decides.

Printing with GPS Visualizer
The website https://www.gpsvisualizer.com/
is amazing. I use it a lot to convert gpx-files, add verified
elevations and to produce maps. Don't hesitate to support it
financially because it's unique. To print maps for your trips, you could go directly to this page with all the esfr-bordermarkers already on them and choose the map layer you prefer. Or go to this page where you can load multiple gps-files.
Printing with Google Earth
- load esfr-bordermarkers-all-waypoints.kml
- load the .kml-file of the stage you want to print
- choose - if it suits you better - an overlay from Eefs
- zoom in (and tilt) until you're satisfied with the result
- print a 'screenshot of the current 3D view'
- or File -> Save -> Save image
Printing with French IGN-maps
But the french IGN-maps might be a better alternative (or perfect
addition), depending on the terrain. The official Géoportail-site
supports the import of .kml and .gpx-files.
