ImportingGPS Tracks


This is a “todo”, rather than a tutorial for the moment:



  1. There are a lot of websites out there where I can create a track on a map and export it as a gps file — how can I use those to import the tracks of railways, roads or rivers into Rail3D?
  2. I’ve just been on a train ride with a gps in my pocket — can I transfer the resulting track to Rail3D?


(not done yet!)

There is an open xml standard format for gps tracks, GPX

Google Maps uses another standard, kml

All we need is a simple utility to convert the track from one of these into Rail3D format.
