How do I add a single location?

In ENVISION, you can add a single location using coordinates or address information. You may wish to add a single location manually to an existing location file, or you may wish to import a file containing a single location. Both instances are outlined below.


Manually Adding a Location to an Existing File

  1. In the side panel, click My Data > Locations.

    Click locations in my data menu
  2. In the Location Files page, click the name of the file that you would like to add to.

    Click your file from the list
  3. In the Location Details page, click Add Location

    Add location button
  4. Manually enter your location attributes in the new row. 

    Note: If you are unsure about the attributes of a specific field, we recommend still placing a value (ex. 0 or N/A) instead of leaving the field blank.

    Enter location attributes
  5. Once updated, click Save.

    Save button

    You will receive a notification when the file becomes available for use. Your added location will also be available in the Results page.

Importing a Single Location into ENVISION

Before importing your location, it is important that your file is formatted correctly. Please see How do I prepare data for importing files? (opens in new tab)

For example:
