A few years ago I asked on ExploreOz how to copy all the locations in the name list of Oziexplorer to a map as way points. I had helpful answers from Equinox and others.

I can't find this information any more. Can somebody help me out with the thread number or give me advice how to proceed.

There are a couple of ways - here is the quick and easy way...

1: Click on Name Search icon, load name search file of interest.

2: Click on the "Plot Name locations as points on the map" icon

3 : Then save points as waypoints by clicking on Save -> Save points to file -> Save Points to waypoint File.

Harder (but possibly better) way is to open the actual name search file in excel (its a dbf format file), do it a bit of editing and import as text file (csv), then save as waypoint file. Benefit of this is that you can use description field to retain feature code info.

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874
