Link to original article: Create Object with GPS Points

It allows to draw objects by entering geographical coordinates.

1. Select the layer where you want to draw the object.

2. Click on the icon Create object with GPS points.  A window will pop up, where you will be asked to enter the coordinates.


3. Select the way you will enter the coordinates: in Decimal Degrees (i.e. -31.500000) or Degrees, Minutes and Seconds (i.e. S 31ยบ, 30' 00").


4. Enter the latitude coordinates (N/S) of the first point (if the input is in decimal degrees you need to write the "-" sign in front of the number; but if the input is in degrees, minutes and seconds, after typing N or S you should leave a blank space before typing the value, in case that it has two digits). Use the TAB key to input longitude (E/W).


5. Press the Enter key or click on + to add the point to the list.

Repeat steps 4 and 5 to input all the points that define a object (in case it is a line or a polygon). If the object is a line you need to enter the two points that define the line, and at least three points for a polygon.

6. Click on Add to create the object on the selected layer.
