GPXSee is a Qt-based GPS log file viewer and analyzer that supports all common GPS log file formats.

The software is released under an open source license.

GPXSee supports a wide range of formats.

Features include:

  • Opens GPX, TCX, FIT, KML, IGC, NMEA, SLF, LOC, GeoJSON, OziExplorer (PLT, RTE, WPT), Garmin CSV and geotagged JPEG files.
  • User-definable online maps (OpenStreetMap/Google tiles, WMTS, WMS, TMS, QuadTiles).
  • Offline maps (OziExplorer maps, TrekBuddy maps/atlases, Garmin IMG & JNX maps, TwoNav RMaps, GeoTIFF images, MBTiles).
  • Elevation, speed, heart rate, cadence, power, temperature and gear ratio/shifts graphs.
  • Support for DEM files (SRTM HGT).
  • Data from the following sensors is supported by GPXSee:
    • Heart rate.
    • Cadence.
    • Power.
    • Temperature.
    • Gear ratio/shifts (Shimano Di2, SRAM eTap).
  • Support for POI files.
  • Print/export to PDF. There are 2 print modes:
    • WYSIWYG – the printed area is approximately the display area. The map zoom level doesn’t change.
    • High-Resolution – the zoom level changes so the whole content (tracks/waypoints) fits into the printed area, and the map resolution is as close as possible to the print resolution.
  • Multiple tracks in one view.
  • Full screen mode.
  • HiDPI/Retina displays & maps support.
  • OpenGL support.
  • Cross-platform support – runs under Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.
