Convert GPX Collected Data to KML Styled Features

The GPS exchange format (GPX) is used to store data about locations and routes recorded on devices like Garmin’s GPS or smartphones with global positioning system applications. With FME you can simplify the collected GPX data and create compelling Keyhole Markup Language (KML) displays to share with others.

Customize How Your GPX Data is Presented

Collecting waypoints and tracks on your GPS device is simple, but interpreting the resulting data can have its challenges. This is especially true for those who are unfamiliar with surveying methods. Easily display GPX data with custom designs and annotations in KML format using FME’s tools including KML specific transformers like the KMLStyler and KMLPropertySetter.
