To submit your GIS data, log in to the PRORAGIS database just as when submitting survey data. Click on "Profile Management," select the relevant year for data entry, and find the GIS tab at the end of the second row of tabs.
There are three (3) available methodologies for loading your GIS information into PRORAGIS. The method you choose will depend, to a large extent, on your current resource inventory storage methodology. The possibilities include:
You have a GIS system in use with all your parks, trails, and facility data loaded into the NRPA File Geodatabase schema.
You have your inventory of parks, trails, and facilities on an Excel spreadsheet.
Submit data manually if you have no recorded inventory of parks, trails, and facilities and no direct access to GIS applications.
The above process can take some time to complete if the data is not readily available. We encourage you to use interns from local colleges or high schools if you are short of personnel to complete the profile. We also encourage you to load a small test dataset before proceeding with the entire dataset to work out any attribute issues up front.
