Morning,
Does anyone know of a way of extracting the maps and/or courses from 2drerun or http://www.tulospalvelu.fi/gps/? Ideally in a PDF format. I know I could print screen but I don't think that preserves the quality and scale as well. I'm planning on doing some map geeking before the WOC spectator races but the map samples are quite poor quality online.
Thanks
RHF

I don't remember the exact URL to use, but I have previously used Wireshark to trace the network traffic when connecting to either RouteGadget or that tracking site, and afair there is one obvious call that retrieves the map image.

Add "map" to the gpsseuranta tracking url. Like this

@Terje - wow, no need to go sharking. Simply activate the "developer tools" (F12 on most browser on Windows), look for "Network" tab, filter for "Images", sort by "Size" - because as we all know, size does matter. :)
