GPS to Feature ArcGIS Pro Task

Blog Post created by pjdeagle-co-nz-esridist Employee on May 5, 2016

I have started to explore tasks in ArcGIS Pro and thought I would share it with all of you.


Link: Import GPS Data in ArcGIS Pro Task


The audience for this task is anyone who has to work with .gpx files, but I know this will be important for those of you working in Public Safety (especially Search and Rescue).


The purpose of this task is to walk you through creating feature classes from your handheld GPS data in .gpx format. There is already a geoprocessing tool for doing this (in ArcGIS Pro and ArcMap 10.x), but I think it is helpful to have an outline of the steps, especially when you want polyline and point output for your geodatabase.


Feedback is welcome so I can improve this task.
