Import Tracks

When importing GPX tracks or similar data, does it always show as line/polygon?
Is it possible to include it under an Operational Period?
Also, do have an intention to provide the NZTM grid reference to the system for New Zealand?

Cheers, Johnny

    Hi Johnny,

    You are correct- when you import GPX tracks, they automatically show up in the Lines & Polygons folder. Currently there is not a way to import them directly into a different folder. However after you import them, you can move them to whatever folder you would like, such as a OP Tracks folder for that particular OP.

    We are considering possibly offering coordinate systems like NZTM in the future although if we do make that change, it would not happen anytime soon. I'm sorry I can't offer you are better answer than that right now since we are in the midst of some pretty major projects at the moment.

    Thanks for using SARTopo!
