That is our point format in the dig_ascii files. (I assume that you meant the
100/180 to be the same number...)  Points/sites were an add-on to the original
dig_ascii files, and to keep things easy were implemented as very short lines.

GRASS treats those as site data for all intents and purposes.   Is there some
functionality that is giving you trouble?
