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 Files 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.

KMZ Google Earth Placemark File

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

  • ZIP Compression: KMZ files use ZIP compression to reduce the file size and bandwidth usage, making them faster and easier to download and upload compared to KML files.
  • Geometrical Support: KMZ files support point, line string, polygon, and Collada DAE model geometries, which can represent various features and objects on the map.
  • Compatibility: KMZ files can be viewed and edited by various applications and software, such as Google Earth, Google Maps, ArcGIS, QGIS, and more.

KMZ Files Converter: KMZ files can be imported and exported by our Automapki Application, which is compatible with AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD. This application enables you to convert your DWG entities, such as point, polygon, curve, polyface mesh, 3D solid, and raster image, to KMZ files, and vice versa.
