So I’ve been trying to export the data from the AMSA (the digital data from https://www.operations.amsa.gov.au/Spatial/DataServices/DigitalData which contains about 1 million data points per month). And I found a way to export the shapefile’s data to a CSV file :D!
- Install QGIS from Kyngchaos for Mac users!! http://www.kyngchaos.com/software/qgis
- Drag the “.shp” and drop it into the “Layers” panel on the left hand panel
- Click on the layer and then on the menu item, and select Layers –> Save As
- Select “Comma Separated Values”, and select a file to save to. It might probably pay to check which projection you’re saving it to, but I found it’s smart enough to use the same projection the source file uses.
- Click OK.
