Add Data via CSV
With Site Control you can import data from CSVs and Excel spreadsheets to visualize, query, and work with the data in a parcel map setting.
NOTE: Currently, we require data sources to contain a column with Parcel IDs so we can match data to properties we have online. More data-matching methods will be coming online soon.
Below is a step-by-step guide to importing data from a CSV or Excel spreadsheet:
Click “Manage Map” Click “Import” Select, or drag, the spreadsheet you’d like to upload Click “Import” Once the data preview appears, select the column that contains the Parcel ID (we’ll try to guess, but make sure it’s correct) Based on the parcel IDs in your data, we’ll try to determine the city you’re importing data to – make sure this is correct and click the city that appears that matches the data you’re importing Click “Finish” Click “See Results on Your Map” Standby for importing to complete (alert box in upper right of screen will show progress)
Below is an animation showing how to connect import a CSV of data:
NOTE: Once you upload a spreadsheet, Site Control will begin to import data when you click “See The Results on Your Map”. Larger datasets will take a while, and there is a max of 200,000 rows of data that you can add to a map.
Once you return to your map, an alert box in the top right of your screen will show progress as data is added to your map. When data importing is complete, you’ll see the boundaries that contain imported data shade in a new color to denote that there is now data within that boundary.
