I'm trying to plot GPS data in ArcGIS pro for the first time.

The raw data is in text format and looks like below

 

$GPRMC,151144.00,A,3335.69893,N,13012.84953,E,5.219,253.95,171218,,,A*68

$GPRMC,151152.00,A,3335.69887,N,13012.83373,E,2.715,255.40,171218,,,A*65

$GPRMC,151153.00,A,3335.70102,N,13012.83402,E,2.412,285.11,171218,,,A*64

I found that GPX to Feature class was easy and fast, I first converted this text file to .gpx file using website service and succeeded in plotting the data in ArcGIS Pro.

1. GPX to Feature class (tool_gpx.PNG)

2. Successfully mapped (map.PNG)

 

 

After that, I could convert the point data to line by Point to Lines tool.

3. Converted to point to line (line.PNG)

 

It looks pretty good, but I wonder if there is a way to size or highlight parts of the line that had overlapped.

In other words, the car tracked by GPS did not drive straight from the start to the end point, but it traveled back and force sometime. 

I would really appreciate if anyone is familiar with GPS and could help answer my question.
