Split lat long from different rows

I have data that is arranged like below:

idvaluepath
194562-94.584621
19456234.4523121
194562-94.264512
19456232.5612322
198723-93.8945643
19872333.7694233

 

The Value field has a longitude and a latitude for each path number and they are related to various project numbers (the id's). 

I've tried to create a variable and dynamically create a field alias based upon whether the row had a longitude (starting with a - sign, or a latitude, but that didn't appear to do the trick (see below):

 

 

 

 

Let LatLong = if(Left(@Value,1)='-', 'long',if(Left(@Value,1)<>'-', 'lat'));

temp:
left Join(attributes) load fc_system_id,
	__KEY_paths_u0,
    if(Left(@Value,1)='-', [@Value],if(Left(@Value,1)<>'-', [@Value])) as $(LatLong)
Resident attributes;

 

 

 

 

I also tried a generic load, but with such a large data set that didn't makes sense.

 

Am I missing an easier way to go about this? ideally I'd like one row per path number but I'm stumping myself on this one.

@DarinLevesque  try below

 

Data:
LOAD Path,
     ID,
     subfield(Lat_Long,';') as Long,
     subfield(Lat_Long,';',2) as Lat;
LOAD Path,
     concat(distinct ID) as ID,
     Concat (Value,';',Value) as Lat_Long
FROM Table
group by Path;
