I have a set of 244 2D [encl. with bound box loci selected to highlight area], (3D is an option I have as well) locus points and a single closed 2D polygon - in its own class and the locus points likewise in their own class. I want to export the points as a cloud of x,y points in this format: 1378385.1650620073,4938850.9892900344 [and with a ,0 for the 3D version - I don't need heights for this] What I want to achieve is a txt / csv / tsv type file, with a list of x,y,z I can then hand build into a GPX file to import to my gps. The points are currently simply 2D (or 3D) loci, and do not have record info so I can’t export to .shp (which is a bit silly of Nemet as any GIS will import very simple files). Neither 2D or 3D loci export to .dxf. This is a lot of kerfuffle for what is one of the worlds most basic and essential spatial data formats. I tried exporting as script file and I got the loci but 258 instead of the 228 that I have in my drawing I've converted my field edge and bounding box to 3D loci so I can verify against georef space. If it matters the file is georeferenced to EPSG2193 (a standard New Zealand datum).
Before I reinvent the wheel I'm asking here to see if anyone else has got a workflows for exporting .gpx file. I want to use one from a drawing in my Garmin Etrex 32x to set out a walking path. I know there's a workflow to get one out of QGIS but want to know if VW offers a more straight-forward route for my very windy path - about 1200m: image encl. for anyone interested. openstreetmaps have kindly written up the gpx format, and I can build from scratch from a points export but hopefully there's a smoother way.
I'm trying to figure out how I can collect elevations and other site data necessary to make landscape models with 2' contoursby myself, without having to hire a surveyor for smaller/residential projects. Is it possible to use something like the Geneq isxBlue? If so, what else would I need besides the receiver, what kind of program would I also need to purchase to make the data useable? I'd really like to be able to use VW Landmark, but I just can't figure a good way to get useful data to work with. I'd like to be efficient as possible without having to get a degree in surveying. Is there a combination of devices like a laser level and GPS? Even that seems like a lot of extra work to enter points into VW Landmark, but if that is the best way, I'd like to know. Even if I got $20,000 + to buy a total station, could I learn to use that on my own and what else is needed to accompany it to collect useful data? thanks for all your advice Eddie
