How to export observation points with attributes?

Recommended Posts


how do I export points from an observation coverage as a Shapefile without losing the attributes observed value and computed value? In essence, I want to export, preferably as a Shapefile, what is shown in the attached screenshot. When I save the coverage as a shapefile, the shapefile doesn't contain the attributes for the observed and computed values.

Thanks for any tips and advice on this.

SMS will export the points to a shapefile, but the shapefile will not contain any of the feature object attributes such as observation data. One approach you could try in this situation is to save what you see in the Attributes dialog to a column delimited text file or copy the data to a spreadsheet. Then import the data into a GIS program.
