Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Using GPS tracks, part of ArcGIS Essential Training.
- Commercial GPS receivers are now readily available…at any store that sells hiking or camping supplies.…Often, these receivers will allow you…to both display your position,…as well as collect data on where you are.…Even today's smartphones include GPS receivers,…and there are many apps available…that can export this data to a file.…The most common output file for GPS tracks…has a .gpx file extension.…GPX stands for GPS Exchange Format.…Importing these files into Arcmap…is as easy as running a geoprocessing tool.…Right now, I've got ArcMap open,…and we're zoomed into Washington State.…
Inside of ArcMap, I'm currently looking at the…Topographic Basemap from ESRI.…Let's go ahead and add some trail data on top of this.…I'm going to go ahead and open up the Catalog window,…and press the Pin icon to lock it open.…Let's go into our ExerciseFiles, here,…into the Chatper_08 folder,…and I'm going to create a new geodatabase…inside of the Chapter<u>08</u>Data folder…in order to hold my GPS tracks.…I'll right-click and say New,…
