Export to CSV

I thought I remembered seeing an option in the past for exporting lines as CSV files, but I can't seem to find it anymore. I found it really handy for comparing different routes side by side in Excel or other plotting software, since Caltopo only allows for one elevation profile to be plotted at a time.

    Hi Paul -

    First, you can plot multiple elevations at once. Look for the "bulk ops" link in the left bar, at the bottom of each folder. In the dialog that comes up, you can shift or control click multiple lines, and then view their profiles in either absolute (actual elevation) or relative (delta from starting elevation) mode.

    I haven't had a chance to document it yet, but the profile CSV export that you're thinking of is now a pro-level feature. However, along with that transition, pro-level users are also able to manually specify a sampling interval and export significantly more than the default of 300 points. So for example, it's possible to get a CSV file of an entire PCT section with an entry for every recorded waypoint, or every 25'. Not many people use the CSV export feature, but for those that do, I think this is probably more in line with their needs.
