Driving Log Lessons Learned

QGIS Track Editing

LineString vs. MultiLineString

GPX files allow multiple disconnected track segments (trkseg) in the same track, effectively replicating the functionality of a MultiLineString. However, my entire process is set up already to split disconnected segments into their own tracks, so there’s little benefit to storing my track geometry as a MultiLineString, and my GeoPackage geometry is thus a LineString. (If in the future I did need to convert the driving log from a LineString geometry to a MultiLineString geometry, I could convert the layer in QGIS with Vector > Geometry Tools > Collect Geometries).
