How to get from a GIS format (GeoJSON) to GPX to OSMAND (Android)

Prerequisites:

  • Computer with internet access
  • QGIS installed: Download (from http://www.qgis.org/) and install it.
  • Android device with OsmAnd installed (free version from Play Store)

Steps:

  1. Download the *.GeoJSON file for the area of interest to the computer's drive.
  2. Start QGIS
  3. Click on ‘Add vector layer’ (top of left side panel) > browse the ‘*.GeoJSON’ file saved in your drive > Open it.
  4. In QGIS, select the ‘Layer’ in the navigation window (left side) > Click right button > click ‘Save As’ > Save as vector layer dialogue box opened > choose the ‘.gpx’ format from dropdown list > give desired name in ‘Save As’ box > browse the location you desire to store.
  5. Open the ‘*.gpx’ file in JOSM (OSM) to see the grid/s and manually draw Grids Number like A1, A2, A3…. Then save the file again.
  6. In file manager, copy the ‘*.gpx’ file from where you have stored it.
  7. Connect Android device to computer
  8. On computer, open Android device as USB storage > open ‘OsmAnd’ folder > open ‘TRACK’ folder > paste the ‘*.gpx’ file into this folder
  9. Disconnect device from computer > restart your android device.
  10. Now you can see the grid/s overlayed on the map in your OsmAnd.

Happy mapping!!!
