What’s the best way to transfer Google maps json to gpx format? I’ve got... heaps of geo points to transfer. There are online converters, and I found a few command line options, but no one has done a recent comparative review that I could duck. Thanks!

@Shufei doesn't google earth be able to save points like that?

@notptr A good notion! I will poke around and seee if it will convert. I thought it just outputs points and polygons to kml... And the GE db is separate from Maps. But it’s a notion.

@Shufei i have uploaded waypoints from it to my gps device. I think it was gpx files

@Shufei I suggest asking the good people who develop geocaching apps (c:geo, Geocaching.com) and websites such as project-gc.com.

@cosullivan I shall do so, very good, thanks! Of forgot that was a thing, but they probably do know.

@Shufei I don't know what "Google maps json" is, but is free GIS desktop software and can import and export just about everything. I use it a lot working with city engineers and web applications, and my converter. ^_^

@maiki Google barfs saves coordinates up as .json files when one archives now, evidently they used to export kml. I gather it’s because of the funky tags and pins they are using.

Thanks, I will check this out! I do enjoy free GISwarez.

@Shufei I'm building public feedback systems that interact with map data, for city planning and transportation orgs. is kinda the "swiss-army knife" of mapping warez.

I've kinda been processing the :
