Enter Geospatial Data in the Data Entry Form
There are several options to enter geospatial data into IMSMANG:
- Manual Data Entry
- Drawing on the Map
- Importing from Excel spreadsheet
- Importing as a shapefile
To enter the geospatial data into IMSMANG, click on File:Pencil.pngicon on the data entry form.
The interface to enter geospatial data mainly or by drawing on the map consists of two tables: a Points table, and a Polygon and Polyline Points table.

From the Point and Polygon/Polyline List window, you can enter geospatial points in one of several ways: manually (see []), by drawing on the map (see Draw on the Map to Specify Geographic Coordinates), by importing data from excel spreadsheet (see []), or from the shapefile (see []). After you have entered the points, IMSMA displays the calculated area size and line length of the geospatial data on each of the summary windows.
