Export notes associated to geocaches

kerenoc shared this idea 8 years ago

When exporting geocache POI to GPX, the Notes that were created by the user are lost (don`t appear when importing in another category). It would be great if they could be included as an extra field (maybe reusing Groundspeak specific tags) in XML.


The Field Notes are exported in a text file, a similar behaviour may also be another interesting option.

hmm when I add some note in geocaching website and then export this cache as a GPX file, there are no my notes. What is then "Groundspeak specific tags" that is globally used for this? Cannot find any now ...

I don`t think that such notes exist in GS GPX schema.


An old trick to include extra things (like attributes for GPSr`s that don`t support them) is to enter them as the newest log. But this works only once or else the first log has to be flagged as "user note" by some means?

oki, so if I insert this note as another locus related tag, will this be a problem?


I don`t want to create something like


my notes


because this may be confusing and also it`s probably against some basic rules


so


my notes


is possible? I think so ...

Sorry, there is a personal note:


(groundspeak:personal_note>abc123(/groundspeak:personal_note>


But it requires the latest GPX schema (1.0.2)


See (https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BzM5...)


(gpx xmlns:xsi="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0">


Edit: I always keep forgetting to replace <

excellent stebu, thank you!!


I don`t use these schema descriptions a lot. Probably it`s a problem but nobody complain yet. So I added export notes and also import from these tags
