Convert CSV text into a shapefile

This is a brief video I made the other night to show someone how to take basic lat/lon text data and load it into QGIS. As a bonus feature I show how to automate creating a simple line feature as well. Basic stuff, but when asked for the simplest way, I froze 🙂 What’s your simplest way for a new user?

p.s. sorry, it’s flash
