Versions 2.0 and later of the GDA Software Interface allow you to select to display your own file(s) of point data in the map display area. Up to ten files can be displayed at one time. In addition to position information, the file(s) can include attribute information which can be queried through the menu options or the text displayed in the map display area.

The image below shows the location of volcanoes (shown as red triangles) plotted on the GEBCO bathymetric data sets. The geographic position information is taken from a data point file which has been added by the user. The data file also includes attribute text which is shown in the map display area.
