If you are really lazy (or really a beginner) you can use the simple upload method, but there are some unavoidable complexities in getting the GPX file out of your device.
(If you are looking for how to upload some photos instead, those instructions are here).
Congratulations. You now have your track recorded using GPS as a GPX file.
If you can't find someone who knows how to do it, find the most extreme nerd you can find and point them at the Expert instructions below.
Using your own laptop on expo, or after you return from expo, use the "more complex" instructions for uploading photos to /uploads/, but upload your GPX files instead.
GPX data is stored in two places.
GPS tracks are voluminous and we also get a lot of repetition as people tend to follow the same routes for part of their walks. So the initial raw data is kept in
and you can create sub-folders for raw data and edited data, or for different parts of the plateau. You should always keep the raw, untouched data as well as any hand-edited data.
The process for uploading the GPX files to a specific folder expofiles/gpslogs/... is exactly the same as for uploading photographs, so go to these "more complex" instructions to learn how to do it.
Note the naming convention for this folder created by Philip Sargent in 2018. Human names in folders in expofiles are written in CamelCase; not lower-case letters. This is for consistency with the naming for uploading photos.
If you have edited GPS tracks and waypoints with no extraneous data
then, after agreeing this with other people as to its qualityand appropriateness,
it will go into the Loser DVCS repository
in folder /gpx/<year>/ e.g.
Note the naming convention for this file created by Anthony Day on July 12th 2018. Everything in any repository is always named using lower-case letters.
