This time we will see how to import coordinates to Google Earth, this is a plantation of African Palm, raised in the rustic (rural) cadastre.
The file format
If what I have is a file raised with GPS, the important thing is to understand that Google Earth requires that the data be converted to .txt or .cvs format. For this, if I have the coordinates in Excel, I can save them in this format.
The coordinate format
Google Earth only supports Geographical coordinates (latitude longitude) and of course those must be in WGS84 which is the datum that Google Earth supports, it can also carry a description. If I open the text file with the notebook, I have the following information:
The first column is the point number (I have assumed it but it is not real or consecutive), the second is the length (coordinate x) and the third is the latitude (coordinate Y), all are separated by commas. Be careful, you have to be clear that the more decimals you assign, the more accurate it will be because in geographical coordinates the truncation is quite significant.
How to import it into Google Earth
to import them select "file / open" and then use the option "txt / cvs" and find the file where it is stored
From the screen you have to indicate that the text is delimited, that this delimitation is commas, then you click on the "next" button
Now you have to indicate which is the latitude and which is the longitude. There is an option to assign postal addresses, but we will see that later.
Then you have to press the "next" button, then "back", then "back" and "end"
And Ready, to change the color and size of the icon, right-click on the folder and then choose properties.
