I have a CSV file downloaded from a GPS tracking system. Every row contains lat, lon, timestamp, and row no. How can I load it into QGIS as a line layer?


I don't have QGIS in front of me at the moment, so this is from memory:

  1. Load the csv as points (you may have to subsequently save them as a layer, such as a shape file or geopackage)

  2. Use the Points to Paths plugin tool to convert the points to lines.

  3. Voila!
