I'm practicing creating vectors/lines in QGIS 3.16.3 by uploading .csv files from Excel with Lat/Long decimal degrees, and then using the "Points to Path" tool to connect the locations.
I wanted to show a path from point A to point B in my town. After I selected the correct 'Input Point Layer' I needed to select the 'Order Field' (the options being "Longitude", "Latitude", or "Intersection"). In order to have the line drawn in sequence with how I entered the points in the .csv file, I had to choose "Longitude" as the Order Field, or else the program connected dots out of sequence.
Does anyone have idea of why Longitude needs to be selected for the 'Order Field'?
