How to Convert From GPX to Google Earth


GPX Exchange Format (GPX) is a file format that stores Global Positioning System (GPS) data for use on GPS devices and on the Web. GPX files contain directions, waypoints, business locations and other geographic data. The files are usually generated by GPS devices when exporting navigational data from the device to a computer. The Google Earth desktop mapping program is capable of converting GPX files so that you can view them within the Google Earth interface. The conversion process is simple and takes just a few mouse clicks to load the GPX file.

  • Launch Google Earth.

  • Select "Tools," "GPS" and then "Import from file."

  • Select the GPX file you wish to convert to Google Earth and click "OK." The file will be imported into Google Earth and the navigational data will be displayed in the Google Earth sidebar. Alternatively, you can drag and drop the GPX file on to the Google Earth interface to import the file.
