Caution: importing this way will allow duplicate nodes to be created, so please do not re-import coordinates that are already in the database.
A list of coordinates already in the database can be seen here: http://www.protichnoctem.com/nodakpaleo/?q=coordinates
This page to import: http://www.protichnoctem.com/nodakpaleo/?q=import/coordinates_csv
There is a link to download a template CSV file on that page.
Fields (starred are required)
Used as a unique identifier.
Locality with which these coordinates are associated. Needs to match the format of an existing Locality node, e.g., "L6516 Das Goods" to complete the node reference. A list of existing Locality nodes can be found here.
Projection/Datum. WGS 84, etc.
Elevation Accuracy (ft)
Elevation Accuracy (m)
How the elevation was determined. Topo map, GPS, Jacob's staff, etc.
Latitude in decimal degrees. Negative values for South.
Longitude in decimal degrees. Negative values for West.
Possible error in geographic position in meters.
Page in Biblio reference from which coordinates information was drawn.
Description or other useful information relating to these coordinates.
If applicable, the name of the GPS device used to determine the coordinates. Taxonomy term.
Person who figured out the coordinates or took the GPS reading. Needs to match the format of an existing Person node, e.g., "Lastname, Firstname I." to complete the node reference.
Reference for the coordinates. Needs to match the format of an existing Biblio node, e.g., "Hartman field notes 2000, v. III" to complete the node reference.
Coordinates based on plotting an arbitrary area, such as the middle of a PLSS township or section.
