Welcome to glidingweb.org
A new resource for glider pilots.
It's hoped to develop this site into a go-to resource for apps and data of interest to soaring pilots, both as a hosting site for web applications and as a centre for links. The emphasis will be on free, usually open source applications. We do not intend to ask for sponsorship or carry advertising.
Right now we have two applications ready for use. Both run on virtually any web browser on any PC or Mac operating system and Android tablets and smartphones where there's an internet connection:
- IGC Webview:
A web based application for viewing .igc files as generated by glider loggers on a map display..
Enhancements July 2016: Switch to Google Maps for the display. Enhanced flight analysis including recognition of engine runs for turbos, and analysis of thermalling performance. Increased configurability
