Building out your own personal data library and customizing your data is an essential part of making a dashboard that works for your community. mySidewalk allows you to upload user data or draw regions that you can use. You can also request assistance at any time. Once you have added user data, you can go into My Data and tag, rename, or add descriptions to your information to help keep things organized.

Before going any further, make sure you have some data uploaded! For more information on adding your data to mySidewalk, click here.

When you are ready to manage your data, navigate to the left side of the page and click β€œData” (the icon with four stacked discs). Under the My Layers tab, you can view your data by selecting files. Within this management page, you can rename, tag, delete, or download the data.

Getting the Most Out of Your Data Layer Library Tools:

  • Using the menu on the left you can filter your data by tags, geometry, and data type.

  • The Search bar at the top of the page can be used to search for different layers.

  • Manage Tags can be used to add new tags to your library. These tags can then be applied to layers for easier searching or to help identify groups of layers that go together.

  • Add Layer is a way to upload and/or georeference data

  • "Boundary” in the left menu bar (polygon icon) to draw or upload a new shape/ region/ boundary/ geometry.
