GIS Help

Here is some additional guidance on completing in the metadata form for your GIS data. Detailed information on the specific requirements for each metadata field are available from the 'i' icons within the metadata form, or from the Geographical Information Systems section of the Guidelines for Depositors. N.B. Those fields marked with an (*) are mandatory fields and must be entered otherwise the form cannot be submitted. Other fields are optional and should be completed where appropriate.

We ask that the information provided here is as accurate as possible as this information will form part of the metadata record for your file.

N.B. When depositing GIS data we ask that all files are accompanied by a spreadsheet that includes the table attributes that documents codes and descriptions within each layer of the GIS.

The GIS metadata template can be downloaded from the 'table attributes' section of the form, or from the Geographical Information Systems section of the Guidelines for Depositors. These can be uploaded in .xlsx, .ods, .xls, .csv, .txt, or .pdf format
