Automatic generation of centroid values when importing

Automatic generation of centroid values when importing

Hi All,

When importing Latitude and Longitude data into the Sites module, I find it very difficult to assign System-generated centroid values to the records. Assigning a value to the "Derive Centroid - System" does not actually populate the centroid fields. Nor, for that matter, does using the "Derive Centroid - User" along with explicit centroid values. Has anyone had similar troubles and found a way to get EMu to generate the centroid values automatically?

Thanks,

Re: Automatic generation of centroid values when importing

Hi Tony - If I set the field LatDeriveCentroid_tab = Yes, it does the trick for me to make EMu set the system derived centroid.
