It would be really helpful if the csv import tools could recognise more options for ways in which location data might be stored. At the moment it has to be stored in two columns 'x' and 'y' or recognised WKT/WKB.
A lot of the data I have to deal with from field surveys comes from software linked to Google Earth, or GPS. These tend to come in one field of the form 'lat,lon', or occasionally 'x y'.
What would help is if we had options within the import dialogue for when the location is contained in one field, the location is in the form lat,lon, and the ability dictate what the separator is.
