Adding hydrants manually
To manually add a hydrant, click the “New hydrant” link from the “Hydrants” page.
Then, fill in the latitude and longitude of your hydrant’s location and an optional name for your hydrant.
Click “Create Thing” to add your hydrant to the map.
Importing hydrants from a CSV file
To import your hydrants from a CSV file, click the “Import hydrants from file” button. Then, click the “Choose File” button and select your CSV file. Click “Import” to import your CSV file into Adopta.
Here’s an example of a simple CSV file that you can use to import hydrants:
lat,lng 37.875271,-122.271025 37.875271,-122.261025
You can also include the
lat,lng,name 37.875271,-122.271025,some hydrant 37.875271,-122.261025,another hydrant
Advanced feature: If you add an
idheader and specify an
idfor some of your CSV rows, Adopta will look for an existing hydrant with a matching
id. If it finds one, it will overwrite its name, latitude, and longitude with the values defined in your CSV file.
Viewing your added hydrants
Once you’ve added some hydrants, view them on your Adopta site by clicking the “View site” link.
