Is there an application that could import GPX file and calculate travelled distance and elevation made? Such as Endomondo or RunKeeper are doing that online? I have some GPX files recorded on GPS device, I'd like to visualise and analise the workout made by me.

  • Have you tried Google Earth?

  • @neogeomat once very long ago. I wasn't aware they have such functionality. Could you answer with some screenshots and details?

Have a look at gpx2kml.com

After conversion you have the statistics as the one bellow. You can also store your tracks and it's free of charge.

  • Do you know, what is the source of the elevation data in that application?

  • As far as I know, GPX files have the elevation attached to each of their coords. I know some of them miss the time, but I never had one with no elevation.

  • Well, that limits the usability of the application to me, because GPS devices usually measure elevation imprecisely, and there are terrible 'jumps' sometimes... Nevertheless, nice to know the alternatives to Endomondo

  • I believe that you need some app/service that works on "corrections", to fix some "out of range" values, based on some complicated algorithm. If you find it, let me know. I also use Endomondo and I believe I run/bike a lot more than it says :))

GPSVisualizer has a couple tools/solutions available here:


You can upload a .GPX file, and it can either append elevation data or visualize the elevation over distance for you

GPX Logger

Sample Visualization:

Sample Elevation Map

They also provide an Elevation Lookup Utility leveraging the Google Maps API
