Manage Data in Resource Map

1) To get started using Resource Map, first create a collection and begin setting up your fields. 

2) Navigate to layers and define your fields.  Each layer is a grouping of fields.  You create any type of field you need, and assign it specific metadata that matches your desired data dictionary or data specification.  By default the facility name and GPS coordinates are in every collection.  You do no need to create these.

3) Now you need to import the data that you have available.  Go to the "Import Wizard" and follow the prompts to upload a .csv of your data.  The file must match the data specification that you defined in your layers before.  The import wizard will guide you through completing the upload or update of locations into the tool. 

Curate Data in Resource Map

To edit data in Resource Map: 

1) First open your collection and either search, filter or review the map to find the site you wish to update.  Select the site and then select "edit site".  

2) Update your details accordingly, and then select "Done" in the bottom left.  Similarly, you can delete or create new sites. 

3) To carry out bulk updates, navigate to the collection settings.  Download a .csv of your data and make edits in excel or other data tools.  Go to the "Import Wizard' and import your data to update all records that have changed.   

Share Data in Resource Map

There are multiple ways of sharing data with your team and partners. These include: 

1) Adding other users to your Resource Map project.  First, they must create accounts.  Then you can add them with the appropriate settings.  This includes access for anonymous or public access to the collection. 

2) Additionally, you can download a spreadsheet of your data from the main map user interface.  Simple select the .csv option.  

3) Lastly, there is a full set of APIs that can be leveraged.  For more about how the APIs for Resource Map work, see the technical documentation here: link
