Lines between track points

Make a possibility to display lines between track points, since some GPS devices does only record dots not in a line (as example mine or Lars ones ;) and so the number of track points are far to low to see anything (to few red dots).

For easy and first implementation, this could be done by specify an additional parameter to the applets and providing an second link "edit with lines"

But an option within the applet can do it as well ;)

Ciao, Imi.

Alternatively, perhaps as a stopgap. Drawing the trackpoints larger (eg 2 or 4 px wide) or drawing them in another colour might make them more visible. Controlling trackpoint draw size with the [ & ] would also be nice.


With bigger dots is this fixed?

It's hard to draw lines since the data is by default indexed by lat/lon and not from trackpoint to trackpoint.

Since I tried to support this in JOSM, I got more unpleased with the idea over time.. it simple does not work good for tracklogs that aren't really be careful about this. JOSM still support it, but I think for the applet (whose goal is to be usable by everyone, not only geeks ;) we should skip this.

The big yellow dots are quite visible to me :)
