Waypoint editor?

I am interested in using the Ardupilot for a ground vehicle application, and I need to enter a large number of waypoints for many different parts of the country. Saving and retrieving the waypoints is a must. I will also need to use an external EEPROM, but that is a different story. I wrote a waypoint editor that can help users manage a large number of files, and, also, save *.KML files for display on Google Earth. I will be very glad to share the… Continue
