I loaded my MO Cemeteries POI file, and it shows 10,225 entries. It also says one of them is outside USA/Canada. What would be an easy way to find that one? Anything in EPE that might do the trick?
Sounds like you have a typo somewhere in there. You could take the low road and just quickly scan the lat/long columns in all 10,255 entries looking for the one that looks different.
No fun scanning over 10,000 entries. Need a program that looks for greater than/less than.
Is it possible that for that entry the latitude and longtitude are switched? If that is the case an eyeball inspection of the POIs will show one that is different. However, there are a lot of POIs to look at.
Can you put it in your Garman and then if you have a Europe map pan over to there and see if any show up.
Just a thought as I am so out of practice on my Garmin I don't even know if that is possible.
Output the file as a CSV then sort it. once on longitude the on latitude. The error will be very evident.
...look for points outside the following boundries. Missouri is approximately defined by
Northwest corner 40.6 deg N x 95.8 deg W
Northeast corner 40.6 deg N x 91.8 deg W
Southwest corner 36.5 deg N x 94.6 deg W
Southeast corner 36.2 deg N x 90.0 deg W
Note that sometimes "West" longitude will appear as a negative number using the minus symbol, something like -95 deg. In fact something that simple may be your problem. Changing -95 deg to a plus 95 deg (or leaving out the minus sign) will shift the point to China.
In similar manner, a latitude with a minus sign will put your point south of the equator.
on the head. After sorting on longitude, I was missing the minus sign on one entry. Thanks for all the responses.
You can use EPE by exporting the file by State. it will create several files.
