Data import is used when you want to work with tracks and points from external sources - websites, file folders, databases, applications, add-ons etc. This function is a general place where to start importing. Otherwise there are many other spots where the import can be launched from, depending on the content you want to import - points or tracks.
When selecting the Data Import function, Locus Map opens a file manager window displaying three tabs where to choose files to import. Importable files are in full color and are clickable. More about supported formats see in points/tracks dedicated import chapters.
After selecting the file Locus Map analyses it and modifies the import dialog according to the content - the dialog can process points or tracks or both of them at once.
