We need to give data processors a way to select which of the boundaries represents the official city boundaries. I have (for now) changed "CITY BOUNDARIES" as a layer to "ADMINISTRATIVE BOUNDARIES" just because we have really been uploading a whole lot of stuff in there, and it's not realistic that the system picks up a single shapefile from there. Instead it makes more sense that a user has the option to mark the official boundary file from all available files (could even be a file that is NOT part of the uploaded files in case it's a national level file for instance).

Status change: Open → In Progress

This is now embedded in the PROCESSING section. I will record an instruction video in Spanish and add it to Module 2 in the course as well.

Status change: In Progress → Completed

FYI here is the instruction video, which is likely quite easy to understand even for those not speaking Spanish.
