Sometimes we need to visualize GPX files obtained with GPS devices. These files can be used to describe waypoints, tracks and routes.
Both with gvSIG Desktop (on Windows, Linux and Mac) and with gvSIG Mobile (on Android) you can load this type of files, and overlap them with another type of cartography, both raster and vector layers, with local files and layers available through remote services.
In gvSIG Desktop we can load the GPX files from the “OGC” tab of the “Add layer” window. Once the file is selected by entering the “…” button, we must press “Open”, and then the information to be loaded has to be selected (“tracks”, “track_points” …). The layer will be reprojected to the reference system of the View.
In gvSIG Mobile we can load the GPX files from the “Import” menu available at the main menu.
In these videos you can see how it works in a better way:
