GPX to Illustrator conversion
This experimental service converts a GPX tracklog, downloaded from your GPS receiver, to an Adobe Illustrator file. At present it will only output files on the Ordnance Survey National Grid, and is therefore restricted to GPXs of Great Britain. Future revisions will support Mercator projections for the rest of the world.
