I need a simple way to enter or create a point from a set of coordinates on a geo referenced photomap in QGIS. The points are shipwreck coordinates that are then visually aligned with the reef features adjacent that we know are associated with the site. I am cleaning up a large set of coordinates from different sources and I need plot them and keep or reject them one at a time. After this process I can plot them all as a list. I am running 2.8.1

  • how about the quickWKT plugin? – Ian Turton Mar 4 '16 at 7:27
  • One of these answers may be the solution to what you are trying to do. – Umar Yusuf Jun 24 '16 at 21:43

There are many ways to this:

  • First you can put your coordinates into a simple CSV text file, then use the menu option: Layer->Add Layer-> Add Delimited Text Layer.
  • There is a plugin xyToPoints where gives a graphical interface. Nice for entering one at a time.
  • And the new plugin Spreadsheet Layers" allows you to import a list of coordinates directly from a spreadsheet table.
