-{{ :manual:user_guide:ic_export_alt.png?nolink|}}====== Points Export ====== 
----- 
- 
-===== What is export for? ===== 
-**Points are exported** to another mobile, to a desktop application or web service **for further processing - displaying in a different environment, background, for editing** etc. 
- 
-**Instructions:** 
-===== 1. Select point/s ===== 
-==== Single point ==== 
-  * **Points manager** - select folder > tap the point to open its detail > {{:manual:user_guide:ic_arrow_simple_up_alt.png?nolink&30|}}"more options" > {{:manual:user_guide:ic_export_alt.png?nolink&30|}} export\\ {{ :manual:user_guide:points:pointexp01.gif?nolink |}} 
-  * **Map screen** - tap the point on map > tap its label to open its detail > {{:manual:user_guide:ic_arrow_simple_up_alt.png?nolink&30|}} "more options" > {{:manual:user_guide:ic_export_alt.png?nolink&30|}} export\\ {{ :manual:user_guide:points:pointexp02.gif?nolink |}} 
-==== Group of points ==== 
-  * **Multiple points** - Points manager > open folder > {{:manual:user_guide:ic_tools_alt.png?nolink&30|}} tools > check points you want to export > {{:manual:user_guide:ic_export_alt.png?nolink&30|}} export\\ {{ :manual:user_guide:points:pointexp03.gif?nolink |}}  
-  * **Whole folder** - Points manager > folder {{:manual:user_guide:ic_more_ver_black.png?nolink&30|}} action menu > {{:manual:user_guide:ic_export_alt.png?nolink&30|}} export\\ {{ :manual:user_guide:points:pointexp04.png?nolink |}} 
- 
-===== 2. Set parameters and export ===== 
-{{ :manual:user_guide:export.png?nolink |}} 
-  * **Export format** of the file is at the very top of the dialog. By tapping it you can change it into another one:\\ {{ :manual:user_guide:points:pointexp05.png?nolink |}}\\ //(only file formats can be selected. The dialog is common with the track export so it contains also web services. None of them accepts points)//\\ \\   
-  * **Export name** - the name of the export file, usually pre-filled according to the point/folder name. Can be edited. 
-  * **Export path** - define where to save the exported file. You can select local memory, Dropbox or Google Drive (both apps must be installed first). 
-  * **Parameters** - change according to selected export format: 
-    * {{:manual:user_guide:ic_file_type_gpx.png?nolink&30|}}**GPX** - [[http://www.topografix.com/gpx.asp|GPS eXchange format]] is an XML based text format used for handling points, tracks, and routes. Locus fully supports all valid tags. A more detailed description of GPX format is available on this [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPS_eXchange_Format|Wikipedia page]].  
-      * //Export only visible// - exports only points actually visible on the map 
-      *// Share exported data// - enables to share the export file in Dropbox or other services available in your device 
-      * //Insert a formatted description// - creates a HTML table with the file description - it is not recommended if re-import or further GPX editing is planned 
-      * //GPX version// - optional setting for experienced GPS device users 
-    * {{:manual:user_guide:ic_file_type_kml.png?nolink&30|}}**KML/KMZ** - [[https://developers.google.com/kml/documentation/|Keyhole Markup Language]] is XML based plain text format with really wide range of usage. Since the version 2.2 KML format is standardized by OGC so it is used by many web/desktop/mobile applications as well as Locus Map. It is usable for export of both points and tracks. 
-      * parameters identical to GPX export but one: 
-      * //Include icons and attachments// - enables packing data into one KMZ file - icons, photos etc. 
-    * {{:manual:user_guide:ic_file_type_csv.png?nolink&30|}}**CSV** - (Comma Separated Values) is a common, universal and relatively simple file format that is widely supported by many applications. Usable for export of both points and tracks. Parameters are just Export visible and Share. 
-    * {{:manual:user_guide:ic_file_type_dxf.png?nolink&30|}}**DXF** - (Drawing eXchange Format) - comes from CAD software. Usable for export of both points and tracks. Except of already mentioned parameters it enables to: 
-      * //Display altitude// - displays altitude of exported points as text information 
-      * //Real (3D) altitude// - moves exported points into real height above the sea level and displays them in 3D 
-    * {{:manual:user_guide:ic_file_type_ov2.png?nolink&30|}}**OV2** - [[http://www.tomtom.com/|TomTom]] format for POI database. The same parameters as CSV. 
- 
-==== Export of Geocaches ==== 
-When exporting multiple geocaches to a GPX file all of them are **checked if they contain complete information** (listing etc.). If they contain just basic info about coords, terrain, difficulty, they are **automatically updated** - export of geocaches takes a bit more time than in case of ordinary points. 
- 
-<WRAP center round tip> 
-If you want to avoid this updating, set your Geocaching4Locus addon so that it downloads all information about caches directly (//Settings > Download >// **uncheck "Basic info only"**) 
-</WRAP> 
- 
-**When the parameters are set, just tap the EXPORT button**:\\ {{ :manual:user_guide:points:pointexp06.jpg?nolink |}}
