I want to view this big GPX file without installing any software.

The file is just a long list of 70,000 waypoints like this:

[...]
<wpt lat="50.774661" lon="6.084021">
    <name>Aachen Cathedral</name>
</wpt>
<wpt lat="50.775048" lon="6.08282">
    <name>Cathedral Treasury</name>
</wpt>
[...]

Requirements:

  • Show all waypoints on an Earth map, for instance Google Maps or other
  • Support 100,000 waypoints (or at least 70,000)
  • Show up in less than 1 minute
  • Smooth to scroll/zoom
  • Works on Firefox
  • Bonus if everything is done browser-side, without sending data to the server

What I tried so far:

The same file loads perfectly in about 10 seconds on OsmAnd an old smartphone.

  • Try with this mygpsfiles.com/en, I'm note sure it will be able to handle such big gpx files, but worth a try I guess. – user19124 Nov 19 '15 at 10:15

    @NicolaBastianello: Tested, it does not manage to display the points. And no issue tracker to report the problem. – Nicolas Raoul Nov 20 '15 at 5:31
