Edit GPS eXchange format (GPX) files on your Mac. GPX Editor can edit GPX files exported from many GPS devices and other apps. Open, edit and save multiple GPX files. View with Apple Maps, Google or Open Street Maps. View and edit waypoints, routes, tracks, track points, and file info. Remove altitude information from all points Compute altitude information for up to 10 points of your track, overwriting any existing altitude you may have entered. Free software (GPLv3 open-source license). GPXSee is designed as a small (no dependencies except of Qt), fast and uncomplicated GPS data/map viewer, not a full featured GIS software. However, the spectrum of supported data files/map sources is relatively rich.
What is GPXSee?
GPXSee is a GPS log file viewer and analyzer that supports all common GPS log file formats.
- Opens GPX, TCX, FIT, KML, NMEA, IGC, CUP, SIGMA SLF, Suunto SML, LOC, GeoJSON, OziExplorer (PLT, RTE, WPT), Garmin GPI & CSV and geotagged JPEG files.
- User-definable online maps (OpenStreetMap/Google tiles, WMTS, WMS, TMS, QuadTiles).
- Offline maps (OziExplorer maps, TrekBuddy maps/atlases, Garmin IMG/GMAP & JNX maps, TwoNav RMaps, GeoTIFF images, MBTiles, BSB charts, KMZ maps, AlpineQuest maps, Locus/OsmAnd/RMaps SQLite maps, Mapsforge maps).
- Elevation, speed, heart rate, cadence, power, temperature and gear ratio/shifts graphs.
- Support for DEM files (SRTM HGT).
- Support for POI files.
- Print and export to PNG and PDF.
- Multiple tracks in one view.
- Full-screen mode.
- HiDPI/Retina displays and maps support.
- Native GUI (Qt) for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
- Free software (GPLv3 open-source license).
GPXSee is designed as a small (no dependencies except of Qt), fast and uncomplicated GPS data/map viewer, not a full featured GIS software. However, the spectrum of supported data files/map sources is relatively rich, see the Documentation section for details.
Additionally to the source codes, GPXSee is available as a Windows installer and an OS X dmg from the project's Sourceforge page and in form of various Linux packages from the project's openSUSE Build Service page. Most Linux distributions (Archlinux, Fedora, Gentoo, openSUSE, ...) as well as BSD distributions (FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD) also provide GPXSee in their official repositories, however not always in the latest version.
On OS X you can also use the MacPorts or Homebrew packaging systems to install GPXSee.
The official Windows & OS X installers are always signed using certificates available at the GitHub project page. As the certificates are non-commercial (self-signed) you have to import the certificate on Windows first if you want your OS automatically check the installer when installing GPXSee. On OS X, Apple does not allow software that does not generate them profit like GPXSee to pass OS X's Gatekeeper (you can't import custom certificates) so you need to run the application using the 'right click menu' when opening it for the first time.
GPXSee supports most tile server based online maps out there, but the list of map definitions distributed with the official packages is limited to a small set of well known global map services. You may however easily extend (or change) the default map list with your own map definitions.
There is a community driven GPXSee maps repository on GitHub where you can find a lot of additional map definitions for various map services, usually run by some state geographic institution or a non-profit organization.
If you have found a bug in GPXSee, please report it using the GitHub issue tracker. Bugs that are not reported can not be fixed! If you are missing some feature in GPXSee, you may also use the tracker to request it.
Bad/missing translations can be fixed directly on the projects Weblate page.
For a variety of reasons, you may want to edit a GPS track log before uploading it to OSM. If you followed the conversion step before now, the track log should be in GPX file format.
- You should only upload raw data you collected yourself in the real world.
- OSM is interested in the raw data, so you shouldn't edit your tracks to match what you would like to see mapped. In particular, don't edit the locations of trackpoints, just remove bad ones and split the tracks as required.

- To protect your privacy:
- Your GPS tracks can reveal your exact address and show when you were where. This can give people a lot of information you don't want them to have. You may want to exclude the area around your house (Using filters with GPSBabel shows how to do that with gpsbabel) and possibly modify the timestamps.
- To improve the remove or correct bad data:
- You may want to remove points where your GPS receiver had poor reception (say you were inside a building).
- Also, if you spent a while at some place, the resulting cloud of points is not that useful for mapping.
- If the receiver produced implausible results:
- distance between trackpoints more than 500 m,
- speeds higher than 300 km/h lower than 1 km/h (values can be computed by gpsbabel)
- You may want to split your logs into parts depending on some criteria. For instance, separate the flight log and the bus trip from the airport. This allows more accurate tagging of the uploaded logs.
- To reduce the data volume, you may want to :
- compress a track to reduce the number of points and speed up uploading.
- to delete sections of data which have already been uploaded or are not relevant.
How To Edit Gpx File

- GpsMaster is a free and open source desktop application used to create, view, edit and analyse GPX files
- GPSBabel provides filters (see using filters with GPSBabel). Some of these only work on waypoints, so you may have to convert a track to waypoints and back (gpsbabel allows this).
- JOSM permits reading and writing GPX files. By converting the GPX layer to a data layer, it can be edited, then saved again as a GPX file, or directly uploaded to OSM using EditGpx plugin. Elevation and metadata is preserved since JOSM version 14163.
- Viking, , project allows visualizing, editing and uploading tracks to OSM.
- RouteConverter is a platform independent java application that can edit GPX files.
- Check Perl_Scripts#osmtrackfilter and https://svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/utils/filter/ for some command line tools.
- gpsman is very useful if you can see past the unusual tcl/tk user interface.
- GpsPrune allows visualisation (2D, 3D, osm, Google Earth) and editing of GPX files.

- GPX Editor allows splitting, joining and pruning of tracks, visualises tracks in Google Maps, simplifies tracks using various methods etc. English support forum.
- gpxsplitter splits multi-track GPX files, containing waypoints, into individual one-track GPX files with their respective waypoints. It's useful for GPS units (such as those based on MTK chipsets) that munge tracks and waypoints together.
- gpx_reduce is a small python script that yields high-quality gpx-track reduction/compression.
- Merge Tool and Anonymize Tool are two small console applications (for Windows) to merge gpx files or randomly shift their timestamps.
- Trakclean is a simple Windows console application to eliminate spurious trackpoints (typically recorded when stationary) using a minimum speed or distance criterion.
- TrackProfiler is an online GPS track editor. It allows you to split/merge/move tracks, edit routes, detect and remove GPS errors and add coordinates to images.
- GPS Track Editor is a Windows application to analyze and edit GPS tracks (split/merge/filter).
- GPS TrackMaker (Windows) allows GUI editing of gpx tracks (e.g. deleting parts)
