# Given Latitude, Longitude, and Elevation, how to illustrate a three-dimensional path?

I've extracted detailed path information from a .FIT file and would like to plot this in three dimensions. I assumed GeoPositionXYZ[] would be useful, and have translated the data into a list that looks like this . . .

allGeoPoints={GeoPositionXYZ[{-11.6394(*latitude*), 166.948 (*longitude*), 7.2(*altitude, in meters*)}],
GeoPositionXYZ[{-11.6394, 166.948, 7.2}],
GeoPositionXYZ[{-11.6394, 166.948, 7.2}] . . . etc.
}


I had thought GeoGraphics[allGeoPoints] would get me at least partway there, but it seems to be able to do nothing with the data, rendering instead a map of my current location.

What am I missing?

• maybe GeoGraphics[Point@GeoPosition@allGeoPoints,GeoRange -> "World", GeoProjection -> "LambertAzimuthal"] ?

• Update: Solved it for 2D -- I should have been using GeoPosition[] instead of GeoPositionXYZ. Commented May 15, 2016 at 18:32

Say that list data contains triples of {latitude,longitude,altitude}. One possible visualisation uses ListPointPlot3D as follows.
ListPointPlot3D[

• Ah -- this works so long as I strip the GeoPosition head from my points, and adjust the vertical scaling appropriately. Thus, ListPointPlot3D[allGeoPoints3D[[All, 1]], Filling -> Bottom, BoxRatios -> {Automatic, Automatic, .01}, RotationAction -> "Clip", ColorFunction -> (ColorData["Rainbow", 2.5 (#3 - 0.6)] &)] for my test data.
