Local data

Foxglove can load local data files for visualization.

Supported formats

File extension
ROS 1.bag
ROS 2.db3
PX4 ULog.ulg

Since ROS 2 .db3 files do not contain their message definitions, we recommend first converting those into self-contained MCAP files before loading into Foxglove.

Getting started

To load a local file for visualization, you have several options:

  • Double-click the file from your file manager
  • Drag-and-drop the file into Foxglove directly
  • "Open local file" in the "Open data source" dialog to select a file from your filesystem
