#990 new enhancement

Modify v.out.gpsbabel and to manage track and waypoint elevations

Keywords: GPS GPX track import export, gpsbabel Cc: needels@…
CPU: Unspecified Platform: Unspecified


GPS tracks/waypoints generally contain elevation data, as do GRASS 3D vectors. Currently elevation data in either format are ignored when translated to the other. Include a flag to force v.out.gpsbabel to export elevation data from 3D point vectors to waypoints or from 3D line vertices to tracks. Ditto for in the other direction. Note that the standard units for elevation in a .gpx file is in meters, so provide a mechanism for specifying the elevation units in the GRASS location and convert to & from meters as required.
