I am working on route prediction and I decide to use realistic trace of moving object, I have choose geolife dataset it is composed of 278 users and every user has its trips presented in GPS or GPX I am not sure format in ".plt" file

Geolife trajectory
WGS 84
Altitude is in Feet
Reserved 3
0,2,255,My Track,0,0,2,8421376

I have tested currently trackMatching tool but I get a problem that my format isn't supported

?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
  <error>Invalid GPX format</error>

I have also tested Project-OSRM but it requires an OSM map which I don't have

The custom CSV/Text format has the following structure:

Waypoint ID, longitude, latitude, timestamp
