Rob Raymakers has created a file for display in xcsoar from the paraglidingspots data and the most important thermals (Alps) from http://thermal.kk7.ch.
Basis: Paragliding spots database 11/2015.

If you want to do something like this yourself, here is his description:

Using this tool: http://softop.tomtomusers.com/TomPoiEdr it is very easy to get the paraglidingspots SP/LP and the thermals from http://thermal.kk7.ch to show up in xcsoar.

  1. Download TomPoiEdr, link see above
  2. Download the tomtom-files from https://paraglidingspots.com/navigation.aspx
  3. If you like, also download the thermals from http://thermal.kk7.ch (I only used the top 10000 from the alps) as GPX
  4. Drag all files into TomPoiEdr. It reads .ov2 and GPX
  5. Save as .ov2
  6. Use GPSBabel to convert the .cup. Now you can open it in XCSoar

The .cup can be read in xcsoar. It displays all POIs. The file I created is 2,7MB big.
I haven't chopped it up per country, because i haven't found a way to easily filter POI's based on their gps co-ords into country/areas. The data could be polished a little bit, but for now it works.
