GPX file XML parser



I wonder how to retrieve GPS information from GPX file. The GPX file is also XML file, but I cannot get "lat" and "lon" values from the file.


The GPX file:


<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>
<gpx version="1.1" creator="85" xmlns="http://www.mooncity.pl" xmlns:nmea="http://www.mooncity.pl">
      <trkpt lat="12.273434000" lon="10.993777000">


The code:


          String _node,_element;
         try {
          DocumentBuilderFactory docBuilderFactory = DocumentBuilderFactory. newInstance();
                DocumentBuilder docBuilder = docBuilderFactory.newDocumentBuilder();
         Document doc;
         doc = docBuilder.parse(fc.openInputStream());
          doc.getDocumentElement ().normalize ();
                //NodeList list=doc.getElementsByTagName("*");
                 Element root=doc.getDocumentElement();
                NodeList list=root.getChildNodes();
                _node=new String();
                _element = new String();
                //this "for" loop is used to parse through the
                //XML document and extract all elements and their
                //value, so they can be displayed on the device

                for (int i=0;i<list.getLength();i++){
                    Node value=list.item(i).
               //  _element=value.getNodeValue();
                // System.out.println
                 //   (list.item(i).getNodeValue());
              //  System.out.println
                //( _element=value.getNodeValue();
              //      updateField(_node,_element);
                     //   (_node,_element);
                }//end for
         catch (Exception e){
         //xml end


The output from the program:





Missing values:


lat="12.273434000" lon="10.993777000"


Is there other method or parser for GPX files??

Re: GPX file XML parser

You have to get the attributes to read those values.. using  getAttributes method. You could could google around to find examples of xml parsing.

Use Search. "Accept Solution" If the problem is resolved.
