Truncate Geo Tracks

Smaller geospatial files are delivered faster on the Internet. Some GPS devices and mapping software generate large files with excessive number of points. That much accuracy is usually redundant and the application is reducing size by truncating the number of track points. Size reduction of over 90% is possible.

The application was built with R using the Leaflet library for mapping.
File types supported:

gpx – generated by GPS-enabled devices
kml – open file format by Google
geojson – geographical elements with additional attributes in JSON
