Data Sources: Airtable
Airtable is an incredibly versatile tool that allows you to organize anything, with anyone, from anywhere. Our integration with Airtable makes it a breeze to keep your map up to date. Any changes made in your Airtable base can be easily reflected in your map, ensuring that your data is always current and accurate.
Before starting your import, prepare your data first. Make sure you have at least one column to reference as the name or title of the location and then either an address field or separate latitude and longitude fields.
To use Airtable, you will need an API key from the Developer Hub. In Airtable, simply click the top right avatar to open the menu and click on Developer Hub.
From there, you will be able to create a new Personal Access Token. Make sure to give read access to both "data.records" and "schema.bases" in the "scopes" section. Make sure to save this API key securely since you will not be able to access it again after.
Provide the required fields, a name for your data source, Airtable URL and API key.
Clicking on "Next Step" will allow you to map your data fields into Carta Map required fields. Only required fields are the Name and the Address or the Latitude/Longitude fields. If latitude and longitude fields are found, they will take precedent, otherwise, we will geocode the address for you.
Image fields must be URLs to publicly available images.
When complete, hit import and watch as all your data is imported seamlessly.
