Hi list,

I am here to post an archive that can help many people that have a GPS and does not know how to load their data on OpenJUMP. My suggestion is generata a x,y output based on degrees, minutes and seconds of lat/lon GPS.

The file attached (GPS_to_XY.xls) can make this conversion if the user only enter with the degrees, minutes and seconds data of GPS.

After you could see the next tab GPS_wkt to generate a text file to be loaded on OpenJUMP.

I hope this file could be very useful to us.

If this document could be put on OpenJUMP wiki please put credits to

Ole posted the following notice of a plugin for loading GPS data -- it may be an easier approach than the above:
