Pytrainer is a tool to log all your sport excursions coming from GPS devices. Pytrainer supports GPS track files and displays it in graphs and maps (you can also manually input basic data too if you have no GPS device). We would love to hear from you if you are an avid PyTrainer user!There is no better way to get into shape then to track your own progress, whether its a walk, bike ride, a jog, a 5k runor heck, even a marathon.
As many biking and excursion lovers know, there was no way to analyze data produced by GPS devices without either booting Windows or using Sport Tracks from Wine. Pytrainer provides Ubuntu users with a professional, fully-featured GPS data analyzer for Linux platforms. Pytrainer was originally designed for biking and it has been recently extended to any type of free sport, giving the user the chance to review its tracks, analyze speed and pace and read graphs about the last performance.
Pytrainer is coded in Python, which lets the software run on many different platforms, and for its graphic interface it makes use of pygtk libraries, giving full integration with GNOME GUI.
Pytrainer also offers a calendar, where the user can check previous excursions, together with a multi-tab interface offering graphs of velocity, height and also a full integration with maps.
Pytrainer is a wonderful software, a very good clone of SportTracks that still lacks of some of the feature of its popular and commercial counterpart. It offers the basic features we need to analyze our excursions and enjoy the use of our GPS devices. Pytrainer supports ForeRunner series of GPS devices and any other device able to produce reports in GPX format.
Pytrainer comes under GPL license and can be modified and redistributed by the user. Such a license is extremely convenient for those willing to add new features to the software.
Pytrainer can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Center or from the terminal, typing “sudo apt-get install pytrainer”
