 This set of instructions applies to articles that have already been input into JournalMap (e.g., through a batch import) but that do not have a location assigned to them. The geotagging principles, however, can be applied to single article entry. This set of instructions applies to articles that have already been input into JournalMap (e.g., through a batch import) but that do not have a location assigned to them.
