What is GPXSee?

GPXSee is a GPS log file viewer and analyzer that supports GPX, TCX, KML, FIT, IGC, NMEA, SLF, LOC and OziExplorer files.

Key features

  • User-definable online maps (OSM/Google tiles, WMTS, WMS).
  • Offline maps (OziExplorer maps, TrekBuddy maps/atlases, Garmin JNX maps, GeoTIFF images).
  • Elevation, speed, heart rate, cadence, power, temperature and gear ratio/shifts graphs.
  • Support for multiple tracks in one view.
  • Support for POI files.
  • Print/export to PDF.
  • Full-screen mode.
  • HiDPI/Retina displays & maps support.
  • Native GUI (Qt) for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
  • Opens GPX, TCX, FIT, KML, IGC, NMEA, SLF, LOC, OziExplorer (PLT, RTE, WPT) and Garmin CSV files.
  • Free software (GPLv3 open-source license).

GPXSee is designed as a small (no dependencies except of Qt), fast and uncomplicated GPS data/map viewer, not a full featured GIS software. However, the spectrum of supported data files/map sources is relatively rich, see the Documentation section for details.


Additionally to the source codes, GPXSee is available as a Windows installer and an OS X dmg from the project's Sourceforge page and in form of various Linux packages from the project's openSUSE Build Service page. Most Linux distributions (Archlinux, Fedora, Gentoo, openSUSE, ...) as well as FreeBSD also provide GPXSee in their official repositories, however not always in the latest version.

Reporting bugs

If you have found some bug in GPXSee, please report it using the GitHub issue tracker. Bugs that are not reported can not be fixed! If you are missing some feature in GPXSee, you may also use the tracker to request it.


GPXSee supports most tile server based online maps out there, but the list of maps distributed with the official packages is limited to those that are "freely distributable". You may however easily extend (or change) the default map list with your own map sources definitions.

In addition to the global maps, there is also a "community driven" GPXSee maps repository on GitHub where anyone can contribute local map servers, usually run by some state geographic institutions.
