Show HN: 3D Topography of Your GPS Trackcubetrek.com
As a hiker and (ski)mountaineer I've always been a bit disappointed of how most apps fail to properly depict the topography while analyzing GPS tracks. (I know that Strava offers some kind of 3D view by now, but I still wanted to build my own thing)

The front end is based on Babylon.js, D3.js, the back end is Spring Boot and Postgresql with PostGIS. There's a summary on how it works at the very bottom of the homepage.
