Editing a Project in DEPTH

Adding a File to a Project Page

After the project record has been saved, you can add any type of file to your project item, such as a .doc, .xls, jpeg, pdf, gif, .shp, zip file, etc. through SCDEPTH.   

Note:  If using Chrome, you will need to double-click on "Attach Files." 

Note: To upload multiple files, use shift and the left-mouse button to click and highlight the files you want to upload. Use ctrl left-mouse click to select multiple files that are not grouped together.  

After the upload process is completed, your file(s) are displayed.

Adding a Shapefile to a Project Page

If you want to add a map of the project study area to be displayed on the project page, you can upload a shape file.  

Note:  The shape file must be unzipped prior to uploading.   

Note:  If using Chrome, you will need to double-click on "Attach Files." 

Note: Once you have added a file to a project in SCDEPTH, you cannot delete it via the SDDEPTH interface, you will have to go into ScienceBase to do that

Managing Permissions

By default the project record inherits the permissions of its parent record in ScienceBase, which in most cases is public. After the project has been saved, you can change the permissions to be secured to the NYWSC Management Team.
