In the modeller, I can't find a way to import a csv that has lat/long values and bring this in as a spatial file?

What am I missing?

This workflow needs the csv-layer added into the layer panel before.

QGIS 2.18 Workflow

  1. from Inputs you add a Table (Picture Nr 1. - 2.)
  2. add "Points layer from table" (Nr. 4)

    2a. define x and y fields

    2b. define output-file

  3. save and run model (Nr.5)

The steps aren't simliar with the screenshot, but the order in general is the same.

QGIS 3.2.1 Workflow

  1. from Inputs / Eingaben add Vectorlayer / Vektorlayer

  2. define name and set geometry type to not necessary / Geometrie nicht erforderlich.

  3. add "Points from table"/ "Punktlayer aus Tabelle" tool and define x, y and output.
