MAPPING COLUMNS TO ELEMENTS

This screen allows you to map the Columns in your CSV file to the Elements used by OMEKA. 

The first column on this screen displays the name of your column in the CSV file.  This is the first row of the file or the headers.  The second column displays the entry that is in the second row or first row of the data.  The third column on this screen is where the mapped element is selected.

Occasionally, there will be columns in your file that are not used in the actual ingest.  These columns do not have an element selected in the Map to Element column.  In the example the column title Exten is meaningless to OMEKA so it has no element selected for mapping.  This column will not be added to the OMEKA record.

Columns containing tags also have no selection in the Map to Element Column.  This column has the Tags box checked instead.

The URL for the ingest also has no selection in the Map to Element Column.  This column will have the “Files?” box checked.

When all the items are mapped appropriately, use the green Import CSV File button to continue.
