I have been sent a GPX file to create a trails network on arcgis. When I run the GPX to Feature tool the elevation attributes are all zero, however when I view the GPX file on an online view, there is an elevation profile.

I am not familiar with the properties of GPX files, is it possible the GPX data has no elevation with it and is showing a profile on the viewers (e.g. maplorer) based on google maps?

In which case, can I add elevation data to the shapefile some other way?


Maybe you can use DNRGPS to do the conversion. I usually use this for tracklogs and other raw data types in gpx format.
