Loading spatial data into MySQL with LOAD DATA INFILE

Just a note for my future reference: importing an Excel CSV into MySQL. The WKT column has been constructed by hand to be POINT(lng lat) and the CSV contains headers.

LOAD DATA INFILE '/full_path/to/file-on-server.csv'
REPLACE
INTO TABLE the_table
COLUMNS TERMINATED BY ',' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"'
IGNORE 1 ROWS
(name,description,@geographic_location)
SET geographic_location = GeomFromText(@geographic_location)
;
