gpxsplitter: Split GPX files with their waypoints
GPX files containing multiple tracks and waypoints jumbled together are produced on export by many GPS units, particularly MTK chipset-based devices such as the Qstarz Q1000 and Transystem i-Blue 474. Separating tracks and their associated waypoints was a headache until gpxsplitter came along. It’s meant to be run first-thing after downloading data from your unit via gpsbabel or mtkbabel. It’s a quick little script written in Python 2.x, with dependencies on mxDateTime and lxml.
I thought about turning this into a web service, where users can upload their GPX files and have them split, but I’d like to know the demand for such a service before writing it. Ideally, gpxsplitter should be part of gpsbabel or something… but yeah, I’ll save the XML parsing in C for a very, very rainy day.
There are probably any number of bugs. If you find one, please let me know—and send a testcase too!
