GPS Exchange Format files, GPX files, are created by GPS devices. GPS Exchange Format files can be imported or used as a base layer in a map.
GPX files are XML format text files. The .GPX files can contain way points, routes, tracks, and various attribute information. GPX files use the World Geodetic System 1984 coordinate system.
Way points describe an unrelated group of points. For instance, this can be a collection of place names. Each way point is imported and displayed as the default symbol.
Routes are a series of connected way points. Typically a route is a plan on where to go. Routes are imported and displayed as polylines. One-point routes are imported and displayed as the default symbol.
Tracks are a series of connected way points. A track is where the device has actually been. Tracks are imported and displayed as polylines. One-point tracks are imported and displayed as the default symbol.
Use the File | Import command to import the GPX file as drawn objects in the borehole, map, or cross section view. The way points, routes, and tracks in a GPX file are imported into a single group when the Import command is used. Use the Map | Create | Base Map or Map | Add | Base Layer command to add the GPX file as a georeferenced base layer.
No import options dialog is displayed.
Currently .GPX files cannot be exported.
