XML has become very popular in giving users the ability to parse large amounts of data between programs and databases. Many have adopted XML schema and developed variations of the it. HTML, KML and the popular GPX schema have a very similar look to XML. Using python and more specifically ArcPy, the ESRI blog user khibma and his/her team created a method to parse the GPX data from a GPS watch into a layer file for use in ArcGIS.
