I have some data as follows:

INDEX RCR UTC DATE UTC TIME LOCAL DATE LOCAL TIME MS VALID LATITUDE N/S LONGITUDE E/W HEIGHT SPEED Distance
1 T 9/27/2013 15:24:34 9/27/2013 8:24:34 0 SPS 46.299584 N -105.973519 W 832 m 0.059 km/h 0.00 m
2 T 9/27/2013 15:25:34 9/27/2013 8:25:34 0 SPS 46.299511 N -105.973503 W 835 m 0.003 km/h 0.00 m
3 T 9/27/2013 15:26:34 9/27/2013 8:26:34 0 DGPS 46.299497 N -105.973463 W 838 m 0.027 km/h 8.27 m

What they would like is a line with graduated colors so they can tell the route the cow took in their travels. They are putting a GPS unit on cows on Tuesday and removing them Friday so each file has about 1713 lines of data. I would like to make a line with points and somehow number the points or make a graduated line that turns from say red to blue so they can tell where they started and ended and how long they stayed at certain points. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Diona
