If you have defined longitude and latitude for your nodes or groups, you can use the coordinates to place the nodes or groups on the WorldWide Map.

You can define values for longitude and latitude as follows:

Manually defined or imported Longitude (World Map) and Latitude (World Map) are applied and will not be overwritten if you enable Automatic Geolocation.

Manually define system properties for longitude and latitude

  1. Click Settings > Manage Nodes, and then click Custom Property Editor.

  2. Display the Longitude (World Map) and Latitude (World Map) columns: Click the arrow in a column title > Columns, and select the properties to display.

  3. Type the coordinates for individual nodes into in the Longitude (World Map) and Latitude (World Map) columns.

    Avoid using extra spaces in the coordinates.

Export values for longitude and latitude from custom properties and import them to Longitude (World Map) and Latitude (World Map)

  1. Export the values for your custom properties that store the coordinates

    1. Click Settings > All Settings, and then click Manage Custom Properties.
    2. Select the custom properties that store longitude and latitude, click Export Values, and click Export.

    You have exported the values into a .csv file.

  2. Import the .csv file with longitude and latitude values, and match these to Latitude (World Map) and Longitude (World Map) column.

    1. In the Custom Property Editor, click Import Values, select the export file with longitude and latitude.
    2. Clear the Remove unchanged rows box, and click Next.

      If the box is selected, only the data you changed manually in the exported file will be imported. After an automatic export, there are no changes, and thus no data will be imported.

    3. Match longitude and latitude to the Longitude (World Map) and Latitude (World Map) columns.

    4. Click Import.
  3. Optional: Verify that the values were imported successfully.

    1. Click Settings > All Settings, and click Manage Custom Properties.
    2. Select Longitude (World Map) and Latitude (World Map) to display in the table.

      The values for Longitude (World Map) should match the longitude values, and values for Latitude (World Map) should match the latitude values.
