What is a GPX file?
A GPX file is a GPS data file saved in the GPS Exchange format, which is an open standard that can be freely used by GPS programs. It contains longitude and latitude location data that may include waypoints, routes, and tracks. GPX files are saved in XML format, which allows GPS data to be more easily imported and read by multiple programs and web services.
GPX files are commonly used for exchanging GPS location data with others, creating maps, and geocaching. If you come across a GPX file there are a variety of applications that can open it, including Google Earth and GPX Viewer.
GPX files store three types of data:
- Waypoint - Includes GPS coordinates of a point. It may also include other descriptive information.
- Route - Includes a list of track points, which are waypoints for turn or stage points, that lead to a destination.
- Track - Includes a list of points that describe a path.
