IMPORT & EXPORT data in CSV e GPX
« on: February 17, 2014, 20:29:05 »
Hi
I've been editing over 250 points in the data section by hand, but next I realized the need of the elevation and to ge data from the web (this was the list of 350 town in my country).

So I prepared an excel file with over 350 points in order to import this list as point. I exported my 250 pointes in order to prepare a file with the same syntax but i realized that it is possibile to export in CSV but it not possibile to importo in that format.

So I converted CSV file in GPX format but without a realresult (all coordinates where 0.00).

Could you explain how to edit an external file in order to import it as list point (I need non only lat and long but elevation too). But I have a question about this need: I wish to visualize points with AR plugin. Does it support elevation?

thank in advance
alex

Hello Alex,
  may you please share a GPX file you try to import? Or at least a part. There will be some basic problem, that cause coordinates are not imported correctly.

  Also you may use "loc" format. For example my_points.loc file should looks like this

Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<loc version="1.0">
<waypoint>
<name><![CDATA[Name of waypoint]]></name>
<coord lat="50.184" lon="14.658" alt="100.0" />
</waypoint>
<waypoint>
...
</loc>

Anyway support for altitude won't work in current 2.19.0 version. I've just did it, so you have to wait on next update within a week

Hi
what about the "won't work in current 2.19.0 version." do you mean the ar plugin or the import function?


I'm going to prepare a file so i can send it to you.  But it was simple form me
4 points,  then export to csv, then add a new row with a new point. at the end i passed the file to this
site: http://garmin.gps-data-team.com/edit/poi_manager_online-19_23.php
it returnd a gpx file but it fails to import in locus.

I don't know if is the site wrong (some strange character o a differente format).

next weekend i m going to do more deep tests

thanks
alex

Ah sorry, I mean by this, that "alt" parameter in loc file format will not work in current version.

Altitude should work for you in AR add-on. Question is if this add-on works for you at all, because there is quite a lot of known and not yet fixed problems.
