SeaNav lets you add individual Point of Interest (POI) at a tap of the screen in the app but what about importing a list of POIs that you already have? We have set up a service to make creating SeaNav Points of Interest from a list of latitudes and longitudes easier and faster. Simply upload a CSV file ( spreadsheet comma separated values) of the POIs using this web link
A SeaNav ready kmz file will be downloaded to your desktop which you can then share and import to SeaNav via email or Dropbox. You can also view the kmz file in Google Earth.
The format for the csv file is very simple and contains one or more lines with:-
name,type (integer 1-6),description,longitude(DD.DDD),latitude (DD.DDD)
e.g. Bass here,3,Good spot,-0.473850,50.291134
The POI types are:
- 1. general
- 2. hazard
- 3. fishing spot
- 4. diving location
- 5. race markers for club racing
- 6. favourite harbour or anchorage spot
- 7. bridge
These set the POI icon to be used as well.
The description can be html markup including an image link e.g.
Be sure to wrap html descriptions in quotes as above.
