There are various uses for using an X and Y coordinate pair when using a mapping system such as our EZ site and related viewers, however most of us will geocode a location with an address (see screenshot below for 6 S Congress St from our EZ Site).
Here are the suggested tools for a few use cases:
- What do you do if you want more specific point information through interacting with a map (Plot Coords)?
- What if someone supplies you with Lat/Long coordinates and you need to plot those on the map (Enter Coords)?
- Did someone give you a spreadsheet with Latitude in one column and Longitude in another, a long series of locations to plot at one time (Add CSV file)?
Don’t fret, the screenshots below describe the tools that allow you to accomplish just this.
The following graphic explains how to use the coordinate buttons and settings.
A graphic will appear on the map where you click or corresponding to an entered value.
On the Maps & Data Sources tab, use the ‘Add CSV file’ button to plot a series of locations on the map at one time. The CSV file should have this two column format: Latitude, Longitude
Note that what you added will display in the Map Layers list as a ‘graphics layer’ with the same name as your CSV. You can then symbolize the layer and make a printable map.
