The system as is produce KML output, but I am looking to create a GPX file with picture id (e.g., HPIM00999) lat/lon, elevation and time stamp. The available KML to GPX file formats really do not seem to work well. Any chance a GPX output could be added or anybody know of a KML to GPX conversion that works. I have hit all the obvious ones on the net....GPSBabel, HoudahGPS, KMLtoGPX Convert. Thanks for any help.

Hi!

There is no way, I know of, to link photos from a GPX file.

Do you have an example of such a file? What would you like to use it for?

Hi...I am part of a study to evaluate plant regeneration after a fire. We take periodic photos of a burn site and tag them with time, date, lat/lon and elevation. The photos are published on a website and we need to produce a GPX file with his information. I believe we are going to use the GPX file to map to satellite data as well. We are able to do all of this today with a PC program called RoboGeo, but we have many Mac users. Your program is very intuitive and easier to use than the PC tool, if only it would create a GPX file. The KML file does not translate well to GPX format. The metadata we need in the GPX file is picture name (e.g., HPIM0999), lat/lon, elevation and time/date. All of this seems to be in the KML output, but cannot be converted to a GPX file in the appropriate format.
Regards,
Jim

Hi!

Could you send me a sample GPX file as produced by RoboGeo so that I can investigate this?

What will visitors of your web site use to view the GPX files?

KML files have the distinct advantage of being viewable using Google Earth and Google Maps. You could use Google Maps API to put the map on your web site. You could also publish the KML to Google's "My Maps" and link to those files.

This file will be input to an application that will process this data with some satellite imagery data.  This is a 3-5 year study to determine the regeneration of plant life in a 40,000 acre area devastated by fire.  The results are to be published as a scientific study supported by a Research Grant.

Best Regards,
Jim

Hi!

Today's release - HoudahGeo 1.4.2 - adds the requested GPX export (waypoints + tracks) feature.

By default, this feature is hidden because it is not officially supported. I still don't know where I am taking that feature and cannot guarantee it will continue to exist in future versions.

Those interested in this feature should contact support for instructions on how to enable it.

Pierre Bernard

Just upgraded to 1.4.4. I notice the Export to a GPX file is still in the drop down. I am looking to have about 6 people buy the product and want to know if this feature comes with the 1.4.4 automatically or do we have to enter some code at the terminal session to get it going.

Thanks,
Jim

GREAT PRODUCT!
