6.5.1.2. Creating a set

Registry Administrators and Registry Maintainers can create a set of the lists and spatial data of the Geo-Object Types under the curation mandate of their organization.

To create a set:

  1. Go to the Lists and Spatial Data module either by clicking the module icon in the main menu page or by clicking the hamburger menu () on the upper right corner and selecting Lists and Spatial Data.\

  2. In the left sidebar, find the organization of which you are a member (this should be the first organization in the list). The Geo-Object Types that have been created are listed under each organization they belong to. Under your organization, click on the Geo-Object Type for which you are creating a new set.\

  3. Click the Create New List and Spatial Data button.\

  4. The Configuration window opens. First, select the type of list by clicking the corresponding radio button: a. Single date: This list type publishes lists that show the state of all Geo-Objects on a single given date. b. Frequency-based: This list type publishes lists at a fixed frequency (annual, biannual, quarterly, monthly) from a given start date. c. Period-based: This list publishes lists for each specified validity period where all the attribute, hierarchy and geometry values of all Geo-Objects for a given Geo-Object Type are the same.

  5. Fill out all the required fields and any optional fields that are relevant in the form.\

    FieldDescriptionRequired

    Code

    The unique human readable identifier. Code can be used to determine the uniqueness of a List and Spatial Data set if duplicate display labels exist in the system. A unique code is automatically generated by the system. However, you may replace this with another code.

    Required

    Title

    The title for the set in the default locale.

    Required

    Description (Abstract)

    The description of the content of the set

    Required

    Geo-Object Type

    The Geo-Object Type covered by the set. This field is auto-filled.

    Geo-Object Type Code

    The code for the Geo-Object Type covered by the set. This field is auto-filled.

    Include Latitude and Longitude

    For point-type Geo-Object Type only: indication of whether you want the latitude and longitude to be displayed in the list.

    Parents

    The hierarchies the Geo-Object Type for which the set is being created belongs to, as well as the considered parents of the Geo-Object Type in those hierarchies. Selecting one or more of the participating hierarchies and parent Geo-Object Types will add the code and display labels from those hierarchies to your list.

  6. Fill out the next section depending on the selected list type:

    1. Single date: Type or select the date that all the Geo-Objects in the list are valid on.\

    2. Frequency-based: Select the frequency and type or select the starting date when the list will be published.

    3. Period-based:

      1. Click on the New button to add a new validity period.

      2. Type or select the start and end date of a validity period.

  7. Fill out all the fields in the Metadata section for both the list and spatial data.
