Any line with 3 fields total (1 Account ID Field followed by a Latitude and Longitude) is treated as a GPS Coordinate.

Any line with 6 fields total (5 DLS + 1 Account ID Field) is treated as a Canadian DLS/ATS Legal Land Description.

Any line with 7 fields total (6 NTS Fields + 1 Account ID Field) is treated as NTS data.

All 3 types of data can be mixed into the same input file. The output file will list all the GPS to Legal Land conversions, then the DLS Conversions, followed by the NTS conversions.

Please run a small batch first to ensure proper operation before converting a large batch.

If you are using Excel on an Apple Computer, save the CSV file in 'Windows' format. Otherwise the converter treats all your data as one very long line.

The 'Check Syntax' feature allows you to check your data for suitability before purchasing any credits for conversion.

Syntax Check Complete.

The input file name must end with a .csv extension.

The input file name cannot start with the 3 letters 'run'. These are reserved for run output.

'ID' is a line number or key you assign. It is normally the key used to re-import the converted data.

One Credit is used for each conversion.

Only converted lines are billed.

Lines that are not converted (ie: errors) are listed in the conversion listing.

There is no charge for syntax checking.

Each run will be assigned a run number.

All filenames related to a run will contain that run number.

The input file is renamed to runXXinput.csv with the XX being replaced with the run number. This prevents the conversion from being re-run and re-billed.

The Upload feature has been tested to 64 Megabytes.

Files are to be uploaded for conversion purposes only. 'Parking' files such as backups, videos, powerpoints or tarballs is not allowed. These 'Parked' files may be deleted immediately.

We may delete any files that are older than 45 days.
