For locations it is:


The product should look like this:

well table

From this table, export the data to a CSV (Comma Separated Value) file.

Then use a CSV to JSON converter program to create the JSON file, we use www.convertcsv.com. Open the CSV file in a text editor and copy and paste the data into the appropriate field in the converter app.

Rename the JSON file to either speciesName.json or locationName.json
