Simple library written in PHP for reading and creating GPX files.

Library is currently marked as Release Candidate but is already used in production on several project without any problems. Documentation is available using GitHub pages generated by Jekyll.

Contribution and feedback is welcome! Please check the issues for TODO. I will be happy every feature or pull request.

Features

- Full support of official specification. - Statistics calculation. - Extensions. - JSON & XML & PHP Array output.

Supported Extensions

- Garmin TrackPointExtension: http://www.garmin.com/xmlschemas/TrackPointExtension/v1

Stats calculation

- Distance (m) - Average speed (m/s) - Average pace (s/km) - Min / max altitude (m) - Start / end (DateTime object) - Duration (seconds)

Examples

Open GPX file and load basic stats

<?php
use phpGPX\phpGPX;

$gpx = new phpGPX();
	
$file = $gpx->load('example.gpx');
	
foreach ($file->tracks as $track)
{
    // Statistics for whole track
    $track->stats->toArray();
    
    foreach ($track->segments as $segment)
    {
    	// Statistics for segment of track
    	$segment->stats->toArray();
    }
}

Writing to file

<?php
use phpGPX\phpGPX;

$gpx = new phpGPX();
	
$file = $gpx->load('example.gpx');

// XML
$file->save('output.gpx', phpGPX::XML_FORMAT);
	
//JSON
$file->save('output.json', phpGPX::JSON_FORMAT);

Creating file from scratch

<?php

use phpGPX\Models\GpxFile;
use phpGPX\Models\Link;
use phpGPX\Models\Metadata;
use phpGPX\Models\Point;
use phpGPX\Models\Segment;
use phpGPX\Models\Track;

require_once '/vendor/autoload.php';
