I have tried ogr2ogr, and QGIS but nothing seems to work for converting a MULTILINESTRING into individual lat/long coordinates. I am doing this in order to get it into a flat file so I can rearrange the data for conversion into a data format that requires specific columns for latitude and longitude. Ideally it would be in CSV format.

    gis.stackexchange.com/questions/24442/… might be what you're after.. are the polylines already in geographic coordinates? If not gis.stackexchange.com/questions/229095/… could shed some illumination. Jun 6 '19 at 3:15
  • Thanks @MichaelStimson, I tried these options but it seems that it gets "garbled" in QGIS 3.x, and instead of proper x, y lat/long values int he coordinate plain I end up with x,y columns that give me linear counting values 1,1,2,2,3,3,etc fields which are definitely wrong
