GPS Data

Data format

A common file for all routes and points of interest presented on the map could be downloaded from this website. Data is provided in following formats:

  • GPX (GPS eXchange Data Format) – a light XML file format for GPS data exchange. Could be used through Garmin, Google Earth and a lot more programs, applications and sites. By clicking on the download link, in the general case a new window opens (as most browsers read XML format) and through the “Save as” option from your browser menu, data could be saved on a file.
  • GDB (Garmin MapSource File Format). Used for Garmin devices. By clicking on the download link a dialogue box appears with the option to open (in Garmin BaseCamp) or save the file.

Credibility and accuracy of GPS data

All GPS data presented (track-logs and waypoints) are taken on-the-spot through hand-held GPS receivers – Garmin eTrex Legend HCx model. Data are processed in ArcGIS and BaseCamp software environment. When track-logs for longer routes with diverse sections were generated, records of different receivers, of different dates and times were merged through software processing, which could have lead in cases in some inconsistencies in attributive data of track-logs (date and time, profiles).

IMPORTANT: GPS data should be used only as an addition to existing tourist markings, information and direction sign boards, printed and digital maps, natural terrain features and directions given by local people. Before using this data we strongly recommend checking the working condition of your GPS receiver, availability of the needed data in its memory, as well as your skills for operating it for navigation purposes on the field.

The authors of this website do not bear responsibility for any damages incurred as a result of the use or the inability to use the presented information.

When using the presented information, possible inaccuracies in geographical data recording should be taken into consideration. Such inaccuracies could be a result of different factors such as: technical specifications and accuracy of the GPS receivers used, work in places with restricted GPS signal, work in dense clouds conditions etc. By using the data for orientation on the field all same factors should be minded as their accumulation in some cases may lead to wrong positioning in the excess of several meters.
