Recently I have tried to import various CSV files with XY coordinates to MyGeoData Converter. In some cases I got a message:

Selected data does not have a spatial part!

For example, this file works fine:


Within this file I am able to see correct extent in the map, assign coordinate system and transform to desired coordinate system and format, but I got a wrong result with this file (no spatial part detected):


Seems like columns with XY coordinates were not recognized.

Any idea?

There is a rule for detection of columns containing coordinates based on attribute name. Coordinate column is detected if the attribute name of X coordinate is:

x, xcoord, xcoordinate, coordx, coordinatex, longitude, long

or the attribute name contains:

x_*, *_x

Similar for Y coordinate:

y, ycoord, ycoordinate, coordy, coordinatey, latitude, lat

or the attribute name contains:

y_*, *_y

Rename koordinatenx, koordinateny attributes for example to x, y or long, lat - then it should work...
