This question already has an answer here:
Completely new to GIS so this may be the most basic thing in the world however I've followed several other posts on the same question and it does not seem to be working.
My end goal(hopefully) is to take the files(.shp, .dbf, etc) that I've downloaded from the NHESP and turn certain habitats into lat and long values in a .csv.
Basically, I'm trying to determine if bee-hive distance to core habitats etc makes an impact on health, ability to survive, etc(if anyone cares).
I've tried using the field calculator to generate an X & Y coordinate, as well as the "save vector layer as" and changing the geometry to "as_xy."
Is there something I'm missing, or is it possible the files I have simply cannot generate or do not contain the information needed for lat/long?
