I'm somewhat new to QGIS.
I used my Garmin GPS unit to record my tracks while collecting plant specimens for a plant inventory. When I collected each plant I noted the time of collection. I want to get lat/long info for each collection time.
But when I import the GPX file and then save as an .shp file so that I can add lat/long columns, the "time" column is reduced to only the "date" - the hhmm has been removed.
I used XY tools to export the gpx and shp files to get a look at the time column.
The gpx timestamp format looks like this: >>PyQt4.QtCore.QDateTime(2016, 3, 19, 17, 33, 55)
The shp file, looks like this: >>PyQt4.QtCore.QDate(2016, 3, 19)
I'd like to not have to export files to .xls and combine from there, is there a way to retain the original timestamp when converting from GPX to SHP?
