Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is it possible to order a list of (x,y) coordinates in Mathematica by x, then y? I currently have a number of data files in which there are 5 columns: x, y, area, circularity, radius. I would like to order the list by x and y coordinates while keeping the rows intact.

Thank you
