Here is a list of valuable resources, complete with step-by-step instructions and expert advice for converting GPX maps to KML format using our converters. Check them out now to expedite your GPX maps conversion later.


GPX GPS Exchange File

A format widely used for creating and exploring maps, routes, and tracks for various activities such as traveling, biking, running, and geocaching. It has the following features:

  • XML Format: The GPX format is based on XML, which is a standard and human-readable markup language. It can store GPS location data in a structured and consistent way. It can also be easily parsed and validated by various software applications.
  • Data Storage: The GPX format can store three types of GPS location data:
    • Waypoints: Points of interest with GPS coordinates, such as landmarks, destinations, or checkpoints.
    • Routes: Sequences of waypoints that provide directions for a planned journey.
    • Tracks: Records of your movement with a series of points that trace your path.
  • GPX Converter: Automapki Application for AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD allows you to import and export GPX files directly in your DWG map editor. You can combine GPS location data with your CAD designs and visualize them in a map context. Our add-on also supports the conversion of the coordinate systems and the projection of the GPS data onto the georeferenced DWG drawing.

KML Keyhole Markup Language File

A file format that enables you to store and share geographical data with Google Earth and Google Earth Pro. Some of the benefits and features of KML files are:

  • XML Format: KML files use XML to store point, line string, polygon, and Collada DAE model geometry, which can be easily edited and customized.
  • KML Converter: KML files can be imported and exported by our Automapki Application, which is compatible with AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD. This application allows you to convert your DWG entities, such as point, polygon, curve, mesh, 3D solid, and raster image, to KML files, and vice versa.
  • Interoperability: KML files can be viewed and manipulated by various applications and software, such as Google Earth, Google Maps, ArcGIS, QGIS, and more.
