Exporting all received AIS or NMEA data to XML or text file

If you need to export a lot of variables, forget about using a database. The reason is simple: A database table can contain only a limited number of columns, and many empty cells in each row make this method of data storage very inefficient.

Instead, we recommend writing data in the text format to a log file, or to an XML file.

Writing data to a text file

1. Enable the displaying of values in the application’s main window (Figure 1).
