    v299 v300  
    280280That has appropriate CSV files with appropriate columns for the data to collect. Package the filled CSV files in a zip file like the original download.  (Ignore the req.csv file.)
    281281
    282 For the organization "sector", you can use the ones shown here -- use the "abrv" values:[[br]]
    283 https://github.com/flavour/eden/blob/master/modules/startup/populate_data.py#L34 [[br]]
    284 These are official UN sector names, and are very broad. Firefighting and police would be listed as "Protection", and any medical agency as "Health", for instance. Some agencies may provide more than one type of service, e.g. the Red Cross might manage shelters and provide food and medical assistance. List the main purpose of the agency.
     282A good way to get descriptions of the columns in the csv files is to look at the forms for the same type of data online at:[[br]]
     283http://demo.eden.sahanafoundation.org [[br]]
     284Register for an account and log in.  Then you can look at the forms to create these same types of data.  Each form has help info for its fields -- look for the ? beside the field and hover the mouse there.  Some fields have a list of allowed values in a pulldown menu.  (One caution:  the demo server is for people to try out, so people may add data that appears in some pulldown menus.  Just because a menu has a list doesn't mean these are the only values you can use.  If it looks like what's in a pulldown menu isn't a complete and standardized list of values, or if there's a way to add values, then you can choose your own values.)
     285
     286For the organization sector and type, you can use the ones shown here:[[br]]
     287http://demo.eden.sahanafoundation.org/eden/org/organisation/create [[br]]
     288The sectors are official UN sectors, and are very broad. Firefighting and police would be listed as "Protection", and any medical agency as "Health", for instance. Some agencies may provide more than one type of service, e.g. the Red Cross might manage shelters and provide food and medical assistance. List the main purpose of the agency.

    286290There is no official list of skills, since the names differ per agency. But you can select names of skills that are appropriate to disaster response, and the agency to which an invented person belongs. The skills for a person go in the Skills column in person.csv. If you give a person more than one skill, put quotes around the list of skills and separate them with commas -- the quotes will prevent the commas from being interpreted as separate columns. To have 80 skills for 40 people, assign approximately two per person.
     291
     292Offices and Warehouses are both stored together in a table of offices -- the only difference is in the Type column.  Warehouses have type Warehouse.  To see the types for offices, go to[[br]]
     293http://demo.eden.sahanafoundation.org/org/office/create [[br]]
     294and to see that the form for warehouses is the same except for type, look at[[br]]

    288297(Note to students: If you have Eden installed -- which is recommended -- you can try uploading your data through the "pre-populate" function. Ask on IRC about this. Note to mentors: The recommended means of testing the data for this task is to attempt to import the data in a pre-populate folder.)
