GPS Visualizer

Convert a GPS file to plain text or GPX

This form reads a tracklog or waypoint file (in a recognized format) or plain-text tabular data, and converts it to an easy-to-read tab-delimited or CSV text file, or to a GPX file.

  • Addresses: If you want to find the coordinates of a list of street addresses, it may be easier to use the geocoding utilities. If, however, you have ZIP codes, postal codes, or cities & states, this form is the right tool to use -- but be sure to include a valid header row! (See the waypoint tutorial for more info.)
  • Google Earth: If you want to generate a KML or KMZ file for Google Earth, use the Google Earth mapping form.
  • Leaflet/Google Maps: To generate an HTML map, use the Leaflet or Google Maps form.
  • Non-compatible formats: If this conversion program cannot read your file, it's possible that GPSBabel will be able to. (GPSBabel also has a wider range of output formats.)
