"import survey file"

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to import survey data from a GPS unit. However the text file that it puts out is full of data, not just x,y,z values. Could some one please type in a hypothetical set of data so that I can see what the data file is supposed to look like, just two or three lines would do it.

Atlast I can now offer help, every one was great about helping me.

We use a gps station to do our surveys, and I have found that when you transfer the data to the computer, we have to exportfrom the data collector back to itself to convert the file to an text file first and then download that file to the computer. They tell me our VW 10.5 won't accept the file format the data collector automatically formats the data to, it has to be translated first. Once you get the file to the computer it should look like the following and we use a comma deliminated format which has a .csv file extension and shows up as an excel file.
