Map file 

For OziExplorer users: The zipped folder for each walk area contains a MAP file (*.map) plus the associated base map image file for the walk area (.jpg/.bmp/.png), plus attached waypoint, track and route files for the walk in OxiExplorer file formats (.wpt, .plt, .rte).

The MAP file is a text file containing all the information needed for OziExplorer to display the calibrated (georeferenced) walk map; including the map labels, and the attached waypoints, track and route.  Download all the contents of the zipped folder into a folder on your system, then simply load the .map file into OziExplorer. The walk map plus the waypoints, track and route should automatically display. You can then easily modify the waypoints etc if you wish to plan new routes.

For others: The image file included in the zipped folder for each walk area is a topographic ‘base’ map for that walk area. This may be a useful additional map if too much map information is obscured by the track/s and waypoints plotted on the WalkGPS Walk Map. Garmin users can also use the easy Garmin Custom Maps process to convert the map image to a file suitable for uploading to a Garmin GPS unit.

NOTE: The map images, files, and other information provided on WalkGPS is for your own personal use only and must not be used for any commercial or for-profit purposes (also see Disclaimer and Copyright).

 

GPX file 

For waypoints, route and ‘track’ in GPS eXchange format (‘GPX‘) for each walk, suitable for import to GPS Mapping Software (including Garmin’s Basecamp) or for upload to a GPS unit.

Saving the file: After left clicking on the “GPX” icon, read and accept the disclaimer info in the pop-up window to download the file. Check the downloaded GPX file is in your Downloads folder by selecting ‘Show in folder’. (Note: Windows may by default automatically open the gpx file in Notepad as a text file. If that happens, close Notepad and go to your Downloads folder where you will find the GPX file. The file name begins with the walk name.)

Duplicated waypoints: Inclusion of the Route in the GPX file (to allow users the option of navigating in ‘Active Route’ mode), has added a duplicate set of waypoints. As a result your unit will likely display the waypoint number twice for each waypoint. Either of those identical waypoints is suitable to navigate to. But if you do not wish to use the ‘Active Route’ mode for navigation and wish to delete the redundant duplicated waypoints, then follow these simple steps: i) open the GPX file as a text file in MS Notepad (or similar plain text file editor) and select and delete the whole block of text from “<rte> to “</rte>” inclusive (that includes all the route point information), which is below the waypoint (“wpt”) text and above the “trk” text; ii) click on “File”, “Save As”, and at the bottom of the pop-up window change “Save as type” setting from “Text documents” to read “All files”, and add .gpx to the end of the File name. Then “Save”. The newly saved GPX file will now display just the one set of waypoints and the track.

For Garmin Basecamp users: To open the saved file; First go to File and then select ‘Import into My Collection’ from the drop-down menu, then select the GPX file.

For OziExplorer users (after first loading and calibrating a map): To open the saved file, select the “Load” menu button on the OziExplorer toolbar, then Select “Import GPX File”.

For MacOS users: LoadMyTracks freeware enables communication (including waypoints, routes and tracks) with a range of Garmin, Magellan and other units and allows conversion between GPX and GoogleEarth formats.

Note: GPX files can also be opened and viewed in Google Earth (via ‘File”, “Open” and select file type; But GoogleEarth doesn’t always display the contents of a GPX file fully, so preferably use the KML files to view the waypoints and track (as ‘placemarks’ and ‘paths’) in Google Earth.

 

Google Earth files earth

For waypoints and ‘tracks’ in Google Earth’s KML format suitable for opening in Google Earth and also for direct import into GPS Mapping Software. You will need to install Google Earth to view the files.

For OziExplorer users: To open a KML file in OziExplorer, select the “Load” menu button on the OziExplorer toolbar, then Select “Import Google Earth (kml) File”.
