Hi everyone,

I am new to ArcGIS Open Data and will greatly appreciate any help!

I wanted to put explanatory text for each field in the Dataset Attributes table in the Details page. For example, I wanted to put "Location of zip cars in the region" in the blank cell for field "Location", as shown in the image below. How can I do that?

Look forward to any help!

Thanks!

Hi Shuake,

At this time it's not possible to edit the Dataset Attributes table - it automatically displays the summary statistics for the attribute, if available. We are working to build an improved administrative experience that will include the ability to edit attribute descriptions and have them included on the Dataset Details page.  We agree that it's very valuable information for providing context to your users.

Thanks,

Courtney
