You need to have at least one column with address-type information (Address, City, State, Postal Code, Country, or Lat/Long Coordinates). If you use lat/long coordinates, they need to be separated into different columns. You aren't limited to the number of columns you can upload, so include all the info that you'll need to see.
4. Paste in the Data
Once your data is formatted, copy the headers and all the rows that you want to upload. Then give your dataset a name, paste the data into the box, and click "Next."
5. Verify Headers and Click "Ok"
In order to make sure that your data will plot correctly be sure to verify your address columns. This will let you make sure that we're is recognizing all of your columns correctly. Clicking "OK" will create your dataset. If you get an error message, make sure that you included your headers when you copied and pasted in your data.
