GPX is a GPS data file that allows for the interchange of GPS data between different devices and applications; uses standard XML formatting that can be imported and read by multiple Web services and programs; includes tracks, routes, and waypoints; contains location data formatted in the GPS Exchange Format.
This file type, which can be freely used by GPS programs, is an open standard.
Windows: Google Earth, Merkaartor, TopoGrafix EasyGPS, GPS Utility, Microsoft Streets & Trips, TatukGIS Viewer, Safe Software FME Desktop, Garmin MapSource and Fugawi Global Navigator.
The format can be used without the need to pay license fees. Its tags store time, elevation, and location and can be used to interchange data between software packages and GPS devices. Such computer programs allow people to tag photographs with the geolocation in the Exif metadata, annotate maps, project their tracks on satellite images or other maps, and view their tracks.
A collection of points, in this file, is deemed a collection of individual waypoints, with no sequential relationship (for example, all Skyscrapers in Miami). A route or a track may be expressed as an ordered collection of points. Conceptually, routes are suggestions about where they might go in the future, tracks are a record of where a person has been. For example, the points in a route are unlikely to have timestamps, because the user is suggesting a route which nobody might ever have traveled, but each point in a track may have a timestamp (because someone has recorded where and when they were there).
