Atom.io package for NMEA sentences visualization
The ongoing development involves adding support (via Node.js modules) for:

- online/offline data visualization on map
If quick generation/decoding of NMEA sentences is needed, refer to
- FreeNMEA.net – NMEA generator and decoder

Leaflet.js, on the other hand, is an excellent alternative to gmaps.js and can be downloaded and used offline without restrictions. The node package leaflet-engine has been successfully implemented in Atom.io.
