This page is intended as a repository for files created for my hikes and bike rides that I will track using GPS. My GPS unit is a Lowrance Endura Out&Back. The routes are saved using the GPS eXchange Format (GPX) then converted over into KML files for Google Earth (using an online converter) and converted into GIS Shapefiles utilzing an ArcGIS Extension created by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Projection for the GPS Shapefiles is NAD_1983_StatePlane_Virginia_North_FIPS_4501.
