There are two ways to upload geospatial information: either by uploading a shapefile, or by creating a spreadsheet yourself in which you list the coordinates along with other details of the locations. Currently, we have a way to process shapefiles but we must also have a system for processing the geospatial spreadsheets. The final outcome should be exactly the same: the creation of reference spaces in the system, linked to properly reviewed meta data of the original document. But the steps will be a bit different and the code is totally different as we are not reading shapefiles but spreadsheets instead. This feature should be added to the PROCESSING tab in the community hub.

New task was created

Task was assigned to Paul Hoekman

Status change: Open → In Progress

Made the overview page and STEP 1 so far...

Okay so STEP 2 and STEP 3 are also done, almost there... what needs to be done now is that the conversion script is adjusted to actually make this into reference spaces. But almost there...

This was finished a while ago, closing the task now. These spreadsheets can be processed like any other shapefile.
