===Importing Map Data===__NOEDITSECTION__
{{note| The .mxd of the map file and corresponding shapefiles should be located on a local drive on your computer. The .mxd should have an unique name and has never been imported into {{IMSMANG }} before. Recommended size of the file should not exceed 2 GB.}}
<p>To import an IMSMA map:</p>
<p>The export map feature allows you to save a copy of the map extent either to an .apm format so that it can be imported into ArcPad for more advanced geoprocessing, or to a .pdf file as an un-editable visual snapshot.</p>

==Auxiliary Data==__NOEDITSECTION__
The XLS Import feature allows you to import data entry form data or auxiliary data (organisations, explosive ordnance, places, assistance classifications, needs classifications, cause classifications, and country structure levels) into IMSMA using a Microsoft Excel file. This allows mine action personnel without IMSMA access to collect data in a format that can be entered into the system. The XLS Import feature also aids in data migration activities.
{{note| Before you can import data in XLS format, system administrators must set up mapping files that specify how the data fields contained in the XLS files are be mapped to the data fields in IMSMA, the import order, import logic, and business rules, and any data normalization required for import.
