GTK+2 application to manage GPS data

Viking is a free/open source program to manage GPS data.

You can import, export and plot tracks, routes and waypoints, show OpenStreetMap, Terraserver, Bing Aerial and other maps in it.

Download Wikipedia points, OSM Traces or Your Personal OSM Traces for an area on the map.

Make new tracks, routes and waypoints and geotag images.

See real-time GPS position (but not on Windows as no GPSD support on this platform).

It is written in C with the GTK+ 2 toolkit, available for Linux, other POSIX operating systems, and Windows, and is licensed under the GNU GPLv2+.
