GPX

GPX, or GPS eXchange format, is a data format commonly created from GPS receivers. You can upload GPX files to Mapbox Studio as a tileset that you can use in a custom map style.

GPX files sometimes contain values other than latitude and longitude, but Mapbox does not take these additional values into account when uploading a GPX file. For example, the sample file below is a jogging route that also includes elevation and time at various points, but Mapbox will only import the coordinates.
