How to Configure a Georeference/Location Column

Music from www.bensound.com


A dataset must have a georeferenced column in order to be displayed on a map.

To configure a location column to be a georeferenced column: 

  1. Run the Geocoder in the Add georeference tab.
    • Use the Lat/Long option if you have latitude and longitude in two separate columns.
    • Use Address (separated) if you have street address, city, state, and zip code in four separate columns.
    • Use Combined Location is you have latitude and longitude together in one column.
  2. Select "Save."
  3. You may view the map preview.

NOTE: Data must be formatted correctly to run the geocoder. For more information about formatting location columns, see Importing, Data Types, and You.
