- If your city is not in the correct location, edit the latitude and longitude listed in the CityState.csv file.
- If you receive an error message stating "The database can't find X city in the state of Y", the city is not currently in the CityState.csv file. Edit the .CSV file to include your city, state, longitude, and latitude, and MapViewer will correctly plot your city on the map without showing you that error. If you don't know the lat/lon coordinates of your city, you can use one of a variety of free websites to look it up, such as Google Maps.
Example: The current city of Grand Rapids, Michigan in the .CSV file displays a pin in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, in Kent county (-85.6557, 42.9612). This is the more populous Grand Rapids, but there is another smaller Grand Rapids, MI in the Upper Peninsula, in Ontonangon county (-89.2756,46.7658). If you wanted to plot this smaller Grand Rapids, change the latitude and longitude in the CityState.csv file to the Upper Peninsula coordinates (-89.2756,46.7658).
