This list is probably incomplete, more websites could be added.
If you embed a map with a track/route into another website, please comply to the individual usage policy of the service. Also note that many services do not use their own map tile server but use osm.org's, so complying to osm.org's tile usage policy is needed (just a small amount of donated resources is available!). That is important especially if your site is not just a small personal homepage but generates much traffic – a screenshot might be a workaround. Please also respect OpenStreetMap's copyright requirements (some of the services listed here may include a correct attribution already).
These libraries make it easier for developers to build services such as the ones above:
- GpxVComp - Web Free software tool to draw pairs of GPX tracks over a Leaflet map and compare their divergent sections. It is designed to be self hosted.
- GpxPod - Web Free software tool to display/explore GPX files collection over a Leaflet map with MarkerCluster plugin to keep it pretty even if there is a huge number of tracks. Also displays tracks elevation profile and tracks stats. This tool is designed to be self hosted.
- GpxPod OwnCloud application - Integration of GpxPod and GpxVComp into OwnCloud.
