Manually entering metadata from your databases into MapWorks takes time and effort. That’s why we’ve created a simple, three-step metadata import processes that will make it easier. What takes hours or days takes minutes with some simple steps.
Three simple steps for importing your existing metadata into MapWorks:
Download the template spreadsheet from the Export/Import menu in the MapWorks Mapping module
Fill in the information about your data structures
Upload the spreadsheet to MapWorks
But we’re not done yet. To assist you with getting the metadata for the spreadsheet, we created SQL queries that you can run to automatically extract the metadata directly from your databases. Just copy the results of the query and paste them into the spreadsheet and voilà!
The video will walk you through the process, step by step.
