In this paper we consider hyperbolic initial value problems subject to periodic boundary conditions with nonsmooth data. We show that if we filter the data and solve the problem by the Galerkin-Collocation method, recently proposed by us, then we can recover pointwise values with spectral accuracy, provided that the actual solution is piecewise smooth. For this we have to perform a local smoothing of the computed solution.
