Add possibility to convert gps tracks to a way (node order after timestamps). It is currently possible to use nodes from gps tracks and draw ways using the nodes, but not making a way of all nodes in a gps track.

Gps points are get from:

  • imported gps track


  • Recorded gps track

GPS tracks will often have too many nodes, if ticket 2567 is implemented, it can be used to simplify the way.

Right-click on a Track Layer -> "Extract Drawing layer".

A new drawing layer is created with the track segments created as ways and gps nodes simplified.

To avois mistakes, you'll also need to select the way and do a "Feature - Force upload" to commit the ways you actually want to the the upload layers, ready for actual upload.

This is different from #2567 which requests to simplify already existing ways.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
