To create a new data set, follow this workflow as a logged in data manager or theme manager:
Tip: We recommend that you zip your files to reduce upload times and to ensure that no files are lost. To upload a Shapefile, you should zip all individual files (*.shp, *.dbf, *.prj, *.shx, …) in an archive. To upload an XML file such as ALKIS, XSYBAU or GML, we also recommend that you upload them as a zip archive.
To upload your files from a database click «Connect to database» and enter the following information: * Database type (MS SQL, PostgreSQL and PostGIS are currently supported) * Host (:Port) * Database (Provide the database name) * Username * Password
Provide metadata for your data set. Metadata entry is determined by the theme associated with your dataset.
If the theme uses the metadata editor: * Enter required and optional metadata for your dataset or services. * Metadata categories display a red badge with the number of missing required metadata elements. Click the chevron at the end of any metadata category to expand it. * Required input fields are marked by red symbols. Optional input fields are marked by orange symbols. * Metadata categories display a green check mark once you have provided all required metadata. * Click «Continue» to save the metadata.
If the theme uses Republish existing metadata: * Upload your existing metadata file.
If the theme uses Link to existing metadata: * Provide a link to your metadata file.
|If you close the browser or the tab, or you click a different link, you will be asked whether the work in progress data set should be saved or deleted. If you pick save, you can continue editing it later.|
