I have a problem to convert UTM datasets in to a .gpx file. The dataset (800 sets) is like this:Name Number (Zone East North for UTM) Adam-Riese-Strasse 40 (32U 5550307,25 475061, 14). After importing from text file, I would like to convert the Layer, the problem is that I must select a field that contains MGRS coordinates. But I have 3 fields with coordinates. I have no idea how to continue. File:
Name Number Zone East North
Adam-Riese-Strasse 36 32U 5550231,21 474947,80
Adam-Riese-Strasse 37 32U 5550232,80 474949,70
Adam-Riese-Strasse 38 32U 5550290,58 475033,05
Adam-Riese-Strasse 39 32U 5550298,99 475047,33
Adam-Riese-Strasse 40 32U 5550307,25 475061,14

I believe in the import I'm still doing something wrong. my layer has a different icon than yours. It looks like a word document icon in front of the name. in your picture it is a dot in front of the name I do not get anything in the map

  • You only need the "East" and the "Nord". What is the delimiter? For better help, you should upload the text file. – Mike Apr 3 '18 at 17:43
  • how do I upload the file? – Mani Apr 3 '18 at 17:59
  • the original is .xls. I exported it as a text file. I can choose the separator myself. Here I chose the blank – Mani Apr 3 '18 at 18:05
  • Ok that looks better. Where is your specific problem now? Space is a bad Separator. – Mike Apr 3 '18 at 18:32

Name;Number;Zone;North;East
Adam-Riese-Strasse;36;32U;5550231,21;474947,80
Adam-Riese-Strasse;37;32U;5550232,80;474949,70

Adam-Riese-Strasse;40;32U;5550307,25;475061,14

1) Import csv with EPSG: 25832 enter image description here

Choose EPSG:25832 for 32U

Note: North and East are reversed.

2) Export gpx with EPSG: 4326

  • Right Click -> Layer Save as -> Format GPX – Mike Apr 3 '18 at 19:26

  • if I want to convert the file I use the extension: Lat Log Tools. I go to MGRS to Geometry. I only have 1 Field for Coordinates to choose from. How did you do the transformation? – Mani Apr 3 '18 at 20:22
  • I do not understand why you need the LatLonTools? 1) Import csv with EPSG: 25832 2) Export gpx with EPSG: 4326 – Mike Apr 4 '18 at 8:26
  • I've pasted a link to a picture. As you can see, I do the import just like you. But I do not create a dot file. What am I doing wrong? – Mani Apr 4 '18 at 12:15
