FitTrackee allows you to store and display gpx files and some statistics from your outdoor activities.
For now, this app is kind of a single-user application. Even if several users can register, a user can only view his own workouts.

Gpx files are stored in an upload directory (without encryption).

With the default configuration, Open Street Map is used as tile server in Workout detail and for static map generation.
