Exporting Lat/Long to .CSV or ESRI Shapefile


I'm using FLightR to process my geolocator data. After performing the run.particle. filter I am able to plot it successfully using map.FLightR.ggmap, my issue comes after that, I would like to be able to plot those points in ArcMap. Is there a way in which I can export the Lat/Long data and its associated dates from the run.particle.filter to either a .csv or a shapefile? I'm aware that a previous post mentioned it being easy using the ("add xy data") but i couldn't figure it out. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you,

Hi Devin,


I am using FlightR, too. You can access the data like this:


write.csv(Result$Results$Quantiles, file="Nameofyourfile.csv",quote=FALSE, row.names=FALSE)


The file contains means, medians of lon and lat as well as time stamps and confidence estimates.


I hope that helps! :-)

All the best,
