What is it?
This page allows project managers to edit metadata for one of their projects. On this page, the users can edit basic metadata for the project. This basic metadata is available to website users to obtain metadata for locations in the database. For example, the project name on this page is used to identify the project throughout the website, and so therefore should be something meaningful and descriptive.
You can edit the text in each of the text boxes for the different fields. For specific fields:
Name: this should be a short, descriptive name for the project that will be used to identify the collection of data throughout the website
Description: this should be a longer description about the project, including things like the purpose of the data collection
Start Date: select from the drop-down menu the date data collection began for the project
End Date: select from the drop-down menu the date data collection ended for the project
Sample Design: Describe the sample design used for data collection (e.g., Stratified random sampling, Opportunistic weed mapping)
Sample size: the number of data points collected for the project
Purpose: the purpose of the data collection
Caveats: any caveats associated with the data, such as major drought year
