5.4.6 Change a Shape File to GPX
For the conversion of DRA or SHP files to GPX format, you have to go through KML:
1. If DRA file to be converted: In Map Maker, export it to SHP format (Main menu > Utilities > Vector utilities > Export files > to ArcView Shape file). (See also Chapter 5.4.4).
2. With Shp2kml, convert the SHP file to KML format (see Annex 7 for GIS utilities, and installation).
3. With GpsBabel, convert the file from KML (Input format: Google Earth Keyhole Markup Language) to GPX (Output format: GPX XML). (See again Annex 7 for installation of GpsBabel).
