Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi I'm wanting to upload several hundred gpx files I have accumulated from walking/cycling over the years. Is there any easy way of importing them all into one layer on umap. At the moment all I can see is the ability to upload one at a time :-(

Do you need that display of GPX tracks for your own purpose on your local PC, or do you want to display your tracks on a zoomable and draggable map online for the public?

So please EDIT your question and give us a bit more information.

Now had a very sensible reply from Yohan Boniface

to Geoff "That's a wrong sentence, sorry. "Batch" here was intended for "many features at a time through a file, or copy-paste, or URL", but not as "many files at a time" :/ I will change that. There is not multi file selection for now, but that's doable, and I put that in my todo list. In the mean time, you should look for a tool to merge your files before import maybe, but I don't know any with a decent UI (I know ogr2ogr, which is a command line). Sorry for that!"

btw I use Adze (on iOS) for adding the files at the moment

@Geoffjones: just pushed batch files upload. Plus, in the layers select, if you choose "Import in a new layer", it will create one layer per file.

WOW!! Many many thanks just imported 83 files :-) works beautifully. I can see hours of fun dredging all my old hard drives for gpx files :-) Is there any place to leave a direct € £ donation?
