I have my metadata in a csv file. I am having a hard time using this metadata to create layers or shapefiles or whatever so I can isolate these data fields to create a nice looking map. I downloaded the metadata on yellowfin tuna from fishbase.org so I am really just trying to recreate those maps that reflect water quality parameters/expected distribution "events" for the year 2100 I mean I have taken 4 GIS courses. I just I don't know what I am missing here. I am approaching a deadline fast. I was not expecting so many issues. Please help!
