As many here, I’m a new Nodegoat user, so forgive me in advance if this is an easy question. I have a csv table that connects people with certain organizations in the world during specific periods of time. I have tried importing my csv file into my project on NG but keep getting the following error:
“Number of column headings and columns does not match. Review your CSV file.”
Can anyone offer some insight on what might be going on? I have divided my data so that organizations and people are each one type, and then I treat the specifics such as location and dates as object descriptions or sub-objects. How exactly should my table be formatted? I have read the longer post on this forum explaining how to import data and tried to adjust my table accordingly, but something is still not right.
Also, since I have used my data with other tools, I already have geocoordinates for each location. Is there a way to use those with NG instead of relying on Geonames? Or maybe associate those? Often my location isn’t a city or country but a specific building in a city.
Sure, you can use your own geocoordinates. You can either import them directly as latitude and longitude values in the location references of your sub-objects, or create your own type of locations and use the objects in this type as location references. To test these kind of configurations, we always advise new users to first enter a couple of objects manually into your data design, to get a feel for the way nodegoat works.
