I'm currently working on a masters in archaeology, using QGIS to examine some palaeolithic sites. I created a database with the site coordinates, which I collected from looking at bibliographies of site reports, emailing scholars, a couple of university databases and good old google earth. As I used a variety of sources, my coordinates are in a variety of formats so for example;
Grotte de Fees; Chatelperron 46°24'42''N 03°38'18''E, La Ferrassie 44,955 0,941 Grotte du Trou de la Chevre 45.325239 0.588272 Aranbaltza 503017.16, 4805322.50 (in UTM 30N) Grotte de la Verpilliere II 632908mE, 5185383mN (31T) Dzeraza Skala 554026,73; Y: 1243588,633 (S-JTSK_Krovak_East_North)
So basically it looks like a complete mess.
I've also noticed that entering the coordinates into google earth can give different locations if I separate the x and y with a comma or a full stop. I want to convert everything to WGS84 before starting my analysis. WHat is the best way of doing this?
