I'm new to QGIS, and have what seems like basic requirements; however I'm struggling to find a solution. I have GPS data in excel showing start and end points of a boat survey. In a row, it has start x, start y, end x, end y.
I would like to plot these points on a map, and draw a line between each start and end point, but without drawing lines between points in different rows.
I've seen a few similar questions in the forums, but none of them seem to work when I try. Points to path seem to plot lines between rows, and only used one point per line, rather than the two required. I've also seen WKT mentioned, but I don't know how this works.
