I'd like to create a set of layer files containig all historical tropical storm tracks by month and ocean basin. Seems like it would be a great planning tool to be able to visually answer a question like "Where do tropical storms tend to track in June in the East Pacific?"
I can get the data and prepare it in Excel. My problem is that I know very little about XML (the format used by GPX files) and how to export the waypoints into a GPX track format. It is not something that can be done manually as, for example, there are over 1,000 storms in the East Pacific Basin file (and 26,000 data points).
The resulting files from this project
would be available for free to everyone.
Anyone out there have XML/GPX experience and would like to work with me on this?
