You can add multiple locations to a POWr Map all at once by uploading a CSV file. Here's how...
Address,Name,Description <- Heading
Address1,Description1,Name1 <- Fields
Address2,Description2,Name2 <- Fields
Address3,Description3,Name3 <- Fields
address,description,Name,Address <- Duplicate
The first line is typically a series of field delimiters. A good example (especially if you're using the map plugin) is to have the first line contain the words Address,Name,Description. Uppercase/Lowercase letters do not matter, nor does the order of the delimiters so long as as they match with their respective fields beneath them.
is the same as...
Each record is one line - This means that every entry should have its own line ending with a return/new line character.
Address1,Name1,Description1 <- One line
Address2,Name2,Description2 <- One line
Address3,Name3,Description3 <- One line (Notice how there's multiple lines?)
Fields are separated with commas. You can enclose fields with double quotes! This allows you to have have fields containing commas.
"I'm a little tea pot","Short, and, stout". <- Two fields.
Field 1: "I'm a little tea pot"
Field 2:"Short, and, stout".
Leading and trailing white-space is ignored - Unless the field is delimited with double-quotes in that case the white-space is preserved. This means that a field containing
"[space 1][space 2][space3]Tip me over"
will contain 3 white space characters in the beginning (Trust me, there's 3 spaces in the beginning of that field) while that same field without the quotes would have the 3 white spaces ignored.
[space 1][space 2][space3]Tip me over, I'm a tea pot <- No quotes, spaces ignored
Embedded double-quote characters must be doubled, and the field must be delimited with double-quotes. This is a little weird, but here's an example!
If you wanted a field to have the following text:
you would need to have the quotes surrounding "and poor me out"each be preceded by an additional double quote giving you the final field of:
"He said: ""and poor me out."""
