I have "BeginLat", "BeginLon", "EndLat" and "EndLon" as under in a CSV-file


I am trying to import it as a line string but I cant. I tried to import using 'Create a Layer from a Delimited Text File', it imported the data as a point but I want as a line string instead.


So is used 'XY to Line' but that gives me the incorrect output.


Not too sure what I am doing wrong. Any suggestions or hints?


  • you need to arrange the start and end points, now, based on your picture 1, you have a common starting point (for example .... 10 - ... 387) and a set of end points ... Feb 26 '19 at 8:13
  • Can you try another line type 'Simple Line', instead of 'Geodesic'? What will be your output then?

  • Those coordinates must be placed in Australia, is not it?

    Are there polygons in the last screenshot, or densely packed lines? If the XY to Line algorithm created polygons, that would be truly bizarre behavior.
