I have created a viewshed and loaded a variety of push pin kmz point locations.  Some of the push pins are within the viewshed area and some are not.

How can I export to a spreadsheet the list of all push pins and whether they are within or without the viewshed area?

I'm using GM V17.

TIA

    To export to a spreadsheet the list of all push pins and whether they are within or without the view shed area:

    Open your kmz files and Elevation data in Global mapper.

    Create your view shed.

    Open the Overlay Control Center and select the View Shed Analysis layer

    Right click and select Select all Features in Selected layers with digitizer tool.

    Right Click on the map and select Advanced Selection Options>Select All Point Features within the Selected Area

     

    Now that the kmz points within the view shed border are selected:

    Right click on the map area and select EDIT-Edit Selected features to open the Modify Selected Point Features dialog box

    Near the bottom find the Feature Attributes box

    Select New and type view shed for Attribute name and Yes for Attribute Value and OK

    Right click anywhere on the map and select  Advanced Selection Options> Invert Selection


    Now the kmz points outside the view shed border are selected:

     

    Right click on the map area and select EDIT-Edit Selected features to open the Modify Selected Point Features dialog box

    Near the bottom find the Feature Attributes box

    Select the New button

    When I do this view shed is already listed as attribute name you just have to add No as the Attribute value.

    Then select OK. 

    Now all your KMZ points have been labeled either view shed yes or view shed no.

     

    At this point you can select the kmz layer in the Overlay Control Center and right click Select EXPORT>Export Selected Layer to new file and select XYZ (Simple ASCII) Text File>OK>OK

    This will bring up the ASCII Export Options dialog box where you can further select options for your export.

     

    Save the file and then it can be imported into a spreadsheet.
