Just imported GPX file into QGIS.Opened attribute table. where are the following fields? Latitude,Longitude,,symbol,and time . Am I missing something??I used a Garmin Oregon 300 to collect the data. Verified that all the listed fields have info in them using other both Mac and Windows GPS programs.
If you can see the points on your map, then, please, don't be worry about the first two fields!
You only need to create an expression based label for your layer, like below,
and then you'll be able to see the
Now, about the last two fields: I don't know nothing about your data, but because you are sure the
time and the
symbol elements exist in your
gpx file, try to repeat the import, after deleting the
schemaLocation reference in your
<gpx> element. If there is a reference to a companion file, like an
xsl, with some import rules, it must be deleted also. Below is such an example:
If, eventually, you can not see the
symbol columns, can you upload the
gpx file for a review?
If you want to see the latitude and the longitude in your
attribute table then:
- right click your layer name:
- complete as bellow and press OK:
- open up th new layer
toggle editing modeand press
field calculatorto create the latitude and longitude columns as new fields:
Now, if you are not satisfied having the latitude and longitude as
decimal degrees, thanks to this link you can have them as
DMS, as in OziExplorer:
Alternatively to the GPS tool, you can add a GPX file from disk with
Add Vector layer. Most GPS receivers write a GPX file into their internal memeory or memory card, which can be transferred to the PC disc; others require GPSbabel for that step.
Add Vector layer you get elevation and time stamps for waypoints and track points in the attribute table.
Thank you everyone who took the time to answer.I'm thrilled to receive your responses. I gave up on the GPS plugin and ended up using the "add Vector Layer". I've attached an image showing what was the final result.Somehow it still didn't import the Lat/Long fields. I know they are there because programs like Cartographica (Mac) and Oziexplorer(windows) have no trouble importing them. I'm happy to upload the file if someone would like to look at it. My next step is using the TableManager plugin to try and sort out the fields I require.
