Providing Data To GISIN
It's great that you want to share your data with GISIN and the rest of the world! If you are not already a member of a project, you'll want to find your organization in the 'GISIN List' and then either request to join your groups existing project or request a new project to be created for your organization. Then, you'll want to take the first tutorial below to learn how to upload data in files to GISIN. Once you've learned to upload data, you may want to setup a web service for GISIN to periodically update its database from your database
1. Getting Started
The link below will help you get started with; 1) adding entries to the GISIN List, 2) joining or creating a new project, 3) uploading files to GISIN, and 4) setting up a GISIN web service.
1.1 GUID Registry
A GUID is a 'Globally Unique Identifier' is used to make sure that each record in GISIN is unique. GUID's help us to resolve duplicate records, trace records back to their original provider, and perform updates on records. Each record that is added to GISIN should include a GUID. For more information, click on the link below.
2.1 Manage Uploaded Files
Click on the link below to upload a new file, add its data to GISIN, and to manage files you have uploaded in the past.
2.2 Manage File Additions
Click on the link below to examine your projects past additions to GISIN (both files that have been uploaded and web service requests). This is where you can determine what problems occurred, such as errors in your data mapping to GISIN, and learn how to fix them.
