I would like to use the leaflet.draw plugin to allow users to digitize vectors on the map. At the end the data should be downloadable as a GPX-file.

Is there any sample that shows how this can be done?

    Do you want a set of waypoints, a route (plan for what to do) or a track (record of what happened)? Do you need time association with these points / vectors? – BradHards Jan 13 '13 at 8:29

If processing on the serverside is an option you can consider using ogr2ogr, which supports geojson and gpx. http://www.gdal.org/ogr2ogr.html


It can be done with OpenLayers. You can use OpenLayers.Format.GPX to read/write GPX files. Leaflet Supports reading GPX files through plugins but i'm not sure if it supports writing as well.
