Validate GPX file in Linux

The website describing the GPX standard describes a way to validate your GPX file in windows, however it does not mention a way to do it in Linux. So heres how you can validate your files (one way of many, I’m sure). The program you use is called xmllint, and in ubuntu, the package that contains this is libxml2-utils …

GPX 1.0:

xmllint --noout --schema testfile.gpx

GPX 1.1:

xmllint --noout --schema testfile.gpx

Hope that saves you some time!
