Your Gaia GPS data - including tracks, routes, areas, waypoints, and folders - can be exported in multiple formats for sharing or use in other apps.
Here's how to download a GPX, KML, or GeoJSON file:
From the data sidebar:
- On the main map at gaiagps.com/map, click on the item to expand the data sidebar
- Click "Export", then select the file format you'd like to export the data in (GPX, KML, or GeoJSON):
From the details page for the item:
- From the main map gaiagps.com, click the dropdown menu in the upper-right corner of the page to find the type of data (track, route, waypoint, or folder) you'd like to export.
- In the table, click the item you want to export. This will take you to the details page, shown below.
- Click on the "Data" tab.
- Select the file format you'd like to export the data in (GPX, KML, or GeoJSON):
After selecting the format of the file, it will automatically download through your web browser.
After saving the file to your computer, you can upload the file into another program, or share it by attaching it to an email.
Export multiple waypoints (batch export)
To export multiple waypoints all at once, file your waypoints into a folder.
Then export that folder as a GPX or KML in the same way you would in the steps above.
Note: Bulk export of photos isn't supported on the web. It is supported in the iOS App.
Otherwise, you can do so one at a time by following these steps.
How do you download the route from Gaia to a Garmin device?
To add your Gaia GPS routes to your Garmin, you will want to select the GPX option when exporting. Then follow the steps for your specific Garmin device to import GPX files.
When downloading the file and converting to .csv or plain-text, is there a way to get the time-stamps associated with each coordinate?
Thanks for posting.
I recommend using GPSBabel to convert your GPX or KML downloads from gaiagps.com to a csv which will also preserve the timestamps. However, tracks are the only data that will have a timestamp.
When I download the file in .csv, it only has the beginning and end times, overall stats, and the GPS coordinates along the track.
I use the app when I work out, so it'd be nice to figure out my distance splits so I can study my performance when I do intervals or want to track performance changes over time and distance. I see speed listed at different points on the graphs generated by Gaia under "stats," but is there a way I can access that data myself? I'd rather not have to create a new track every time I just want a split.
Thanks for getting back to me so fast! The GPSBabel app was helpful too!
Calculating your splits from a .csv file will take some number crunching, but I think this site might produce the data you are long for utrack.crempa.net.
Is there a way to download multiple waypoints together as GPX points?
Looks like .com only allows for point-by-point download...
Yes, you can download multiple waypoints by adding the waypoints to a folder and then exporting the folder.
I never get the screen illustrated above. Where is it?
The screen above can be found by:
I believe we are working together via email about printing on gaiagps.com. Feel free to email me a screenshot of what you see when you follow the steps above if you have any trouble.
