Do you just want a unique identifier for each point? Could you just index them? – Radar Mar 22 '13 at 20:28
As you mentioned, I would require a unique identifier for each track. Here each track is saved as a single gpx file. Next thing, which I wished to do is, consider all the gpx files, which is recorded in a local vicinity and give them a single identity to all of them. – n9exorcist Mar 24 '13 at 16:16

You might use Geohash, Military Grid Reference System (MGRS), or Natural Area Code (NAC).
