Update your datasets in seconds!

Just like adding a new dataset in Mapline, it’s as easy as copy, paste–and BAM! Your dataset is updated with new information from your spreadsheet.

COPY & PASTE NEW DATA

The data you copy and paste completely replaces the existing information in your dataset. The dataset itself will still be accessible under the same name through the Datasets Library.

Please note that the Replace Dataset function is permanent. Once you paste in new data and click OK, your data will be replaced, and this action cannot be undone.

Any visualizations tied to your dataset will automatically update to reflect the new data you just pasted. Be sure to check your dataset Dependencies so you don’t accidentally overwrite data in the wrong place(s).

Pro Tip: To retain your custom map styling, verify that the column headers in the new dataset are identical to the old dataset’s headers. Otherwise, any styling that’s tied to your dataset columns will stop working.
