Creating a Dataset from scratch¶
An interesting tool that GeoNode makes available to you is the Create dataset. It allows you to create a new vector dataset from scratch. The Dataset Creation Form is reachable through the Create dataset link shown in the picture below.
In order to create the new Dataset you have to fill out the required fields:
Usually the datasets features should have some Attributes that enrich the amount of information associated with each of them. Through the Add Attribute button you can add new attributes.
At this time you can also change the default Share options settings, see Share Options to learn how.
Once the form has been filled out, click on Create. You will be redirected to the Dataset Page (see Dataset Information). Now your Dataset is created but is still empty, no features have been added yet. See the Dataset Editing section to learn how to add new features.
