I would like to import (in order to create a point layer) in QGIS a csv table with UTMREF/MGRS-coordinates. The coordinates in the column look like this 32UMV6134481745. Usually QGIS requires an X and Y field. Is there a possibility in the import, or do I have to separate or even transfer the coordinates in the csv before import?
I have no knowledge about MGRS coordinates system, but it seems Lat Lon Tools is the plugin you are looking for.
Read the CSV file into QGIS as an
Layer | Add Layer | Add Delimited Text Layer
- File format: CSV
- Geometry definition: No geometry (attribute only table)
- Hit [OK]. You will see new layer (table) listed in the layer panel.
Install and run
Lat Lon Tools
Plugins | Lat Lon Tools | MGRS Conversions | MGRS to Geometry
- Input Table/Layer: your MGRS layer
- Field Containing MGRS Coordinates: assign field name
- Hit [OK]
That's all. I may be wrong but the point
32UMV6134481745 returned Lon=
