This (ad-)free app is a kind of reminiscence of the time before the introduction of the GPS tracker/bike computer/sport-watches and Google Maps when you have created elevation charts manually by using millimeter paper and later a PC (Excel, HRMProfil*, etc.).
Thanks to Google Maps and similar tools, it is really very easy to create elevation charts. Just a clicked route or logged GPS data are needed. However, sometimes these tools are not usable, so the old method must be used.
- Enter distance and altitude values
- Calculation of the slope percentages
- Assignment of a title (= caption of elevation chart)
- Elevation chart creation (imperial or metric axis are supported)
- Save/restore the created profile data (XML format)
Short speech, long sense: with this elevation chart creator you can create on-the-fly elevation charts, you only must be aware of distance and elevation values. This app is primarily a prototype for another app that is (still) in the planning stage.
This app needs no special permissions -> only write permissions [WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE] are required a) for optional storage of the height profile data and b) for creation of an optional screenshot graphic if you want to use the share functionality, which does nothing else than transfer a screenshot graphic file to another app.
Perhaps it is useful for some users, that's the reason, why this app has now been published to the public.
Please no discussions about, it is a free app without the claim to be of any value to every single user. For me it works :-)
