I am trying to map out a pipeline, identifying where the pipeline is covered by more than 0.6m of sediment and where the pipeline is not covered by 0.6m of sediment. I have gathered this information in excel and saved it as a csv. file. (seen below) I also have the same excel sheet expressing DOC (depth of coverage) being greater than 0.6m.

enter image description here

Note, I have got over 1000 data points all with a specified easting and northing. Using QGIS I add layer --> Add Delimited Text Layer and upload the document (Shown below).

enter image description here

When I add the layer, It doesn't show on my map even when I right click the layer and zoom to layer.

What I am trying to achieve is to plot all 1000 data points according to their Easting's and Northing (in a line), where I can change them from point data to line data then I can add rules to it so I can identify where the areas lower than 0.6m are and where they are greater than 0.6m. Does anyone know a way of doing this?

    Based on your screenshot you cannot see your features because you have chosen a geographic coordinate system, but your coordinates in your file are projected. You need to change the 'Geometry CRS' dropdown to whatever projected coordinate system your data is in. – pdavis Jan 25 at 15:48

    Perfect and thankyou. Changed the CRS from WGS84 to ED50 and it works a treat – Bodhi Jan 25 at 15:53

As for your last 2 questions, those are likely candidates for separate questions after you can articulate what you've tried and what is not working.
