Import Shapefile

Dear all, I have a shapefile (.shp) with which I would like to find landmarks/ boundary stones. Is there any possibility of importing the file into my RS2 receiver? Or do you have any better solution how to proceed?

Thanks in advance.

Is it lines or points?

I don’t know. How can I figure it out?

As Reachview only accepts points in the WGS 84 coordinate system
you can convert the shp file to csv (you can find free converters on the net like https://mygeodata.cloud/converter/shp-to-csv) and you import it with ReachView as described in https://docs.emlid.com/reachrs2/common/reachview/survey/#points-import
following this format
name,longitude,latitude,elevation
Point 1,30.339,59.958,53.618
Point 2,30.334,59.960,58.944

Otherwise you can use a third party application that can support *.shp extension.

Reach can only display points so you need to convert them into points.
Either way is easy to do this in Qgis and then import to RS2.
Do you have a file example ?

Hi there,

It’s been a long time since someone posted here, but I want to let you know that now we have the ReachView 3 app with a Shapefile support function and a lot of other features!
