Structure Type of Interest

Are you interested in editing one feature type, such as schools? Find a school list from an authoritative source such as a school district and go through the list to edit each school, adding any that are missing as part of the process. Some feature types, such as schools, are easiest to update by school district.

 

Example:

 

1. If you want to edit all of the schools in the Shawnee Mission School District in Kansas, find a list of all of the schools in the district from an authoritative source, in this case the school district web site.

2. Go through the list, searching for each school in the editor using the name, address, city, state, and zip code.

 

3. Next, determine if a point already exists for the feature. If a point does not exist, add a point in the correct location and fill out the name as well as the address, city, state, and zip code if available.

 

As you work through the list of features, make any needed changes to the existing points that you find, delete any points for features that no longer exist, and add any missing features. Make sure to click "SAVE" when you are finished editing a point.
