Creating Points from Tables

This guide will show you how to convert your data from a table into points in QGIS. To perform this operation, you must have a latitude and longitude column associated with each row of your data. If you do not have that information but have addresses or other location data, you can perform another operation called geocoding. See more about geocoding here: https://libguides.lib.msu.edu/geocoding.
