How to Convert GPX to SHP for ArcGIS
Converting GPX files to SHP format is an easy, 2-step process in ExpertGPS Pro mapping software.
Open any GPX file in ExpertGPS.
ExpertGPS uses GPX, the GPS Exchange Format, as its native file format, unlike other GPX converters that throw away most of your GPX data on import. View your GPX file over the maps in ExpertGPS, and if you like, clean up your waypoints by giving them more descriptive names so you'll have meaningful labels in ArcGIS.
Click Export on the File menu, and select Shapefile format.
ExpertGPS will reproject your waypoints and tracks and create shapefiles for use in your GIS software.
Three Reasons to Choose ExpertGPS for GPX to SHP Conversion
1. ExpertGPS works with any GPX data from any Garmin, Magellan, Lowrance, or Eagle GPS receiver.
2. ExpertGPS lets you preview your GPX data over topo maps and aerial photos, so you can clean up your GPS data prior to converting it to shapefile format.
3. ExpertGPS automatically reprojects your GPX data to lat/lon, UTM, or state plane coordinates to match your GIS project.
