Hi,

What would be the format of an ASCII file to create (points or lines) with :
Start location (same for all data), projection UTM1S
Bearing, distance, elevation?

Regards
Iaorana

    I've got similar question and haven't found an answer.
    How can I automatically load few hundred lines having following info:
    - start point (lat,long)
    - distance
    - bearing
    Is there a format for ASCII file?
    What I found is scripting, but it suits for 1 start point only...

    Hi d.u.a.l
    I've been using the script you probably found because the origin of all my lines was the same.
    It seems that it's not your case as you have one origin per line.
    I don't know if there is a way to do it, bluemarble gurus might know.

    Hi Garret, 
    Sorry just saw your post and message.
    This is the script you need to adapt to your case.
    GLOBAL_MAPPER_SCRIPT VERSION="1.00" 

    IMPORT_ASCII FILENAME="C:DIST_BEARING_TEST3.TXT" TYPE=DIST_BEARING \
    COORD_DELIM=COMMA COORD_ORDER="CUSTOM,2,4,3" START_POS="587803.68,8536368.51" \
    INC_COORD_LINE_ATTRS=YES COL_HEADERS=YES PROJ="EPSG:32701"

    Save it in *.gms
