I have ArcGIS 10.2 and 10.2.1 both with Data Interoperablilty extension. But there is a problem with GPX files. ArcGIS simply doesn't see it. In 10.1 there was no problem to drag n drop them but now it's impossible. In quick import tool, when I open FME reader gallery I can't find gpx on the list. What's going on? Have you the same problem?

Have you tried the GPX to Feature tool in the Arc Toolbox? It is located in the Conversion Tools > From GPS > GPX To Features.

If I attempt to drag and drop a .gpx file, a message that says 'Could not open the specified file' appears.

Try this then: In ArcCatalog, click on Customize > ArcCatalog Options > Click on the File Types Tab and manually add in the .GPX file extension. The file will then be recognized.

  • GPX To feature works. But I cannot do drag n drop gpx (and I was doing it in 10.1) because In catalog window I cannot see gpx file. It seems like there is no support in data interopability extension for gpx file in ArcGIS 10.2 or 10.2.1. But I think it's impossible. – Roman Jan 29 '14 at 8:46
  • I just got around to trying it out and ArcCatalog still doesn't recognize the .gpx file even though it appears in the TOC. – Adam Thom Jan 29 '14 at 21:25
  • I think the reason is no feedback for gpx file in the FME engine in data interopability. Check out pictures: ArcGIS 10.1 and ArcGIS 10.2 – Roman Jan 30 '14 at 6:42
