Bulk Import Process

For bulk imports of Hotspot Locations (> 10 locations) of a operator/community we have defined a data format in csv format (can be generated with Microsoft Excel or directly exported from your database engine).


  1. Create a Manager Account and a Operator Profile
  2. Create a csv file containing all Hotspots
  3. Validate the csv file online
  4. Submit your csv file
  5. (optional)Apply minor modifications online

Step 1: Set up a user account and a operator profile on

In order to manage your data, we require the Hotspot Operator/Community to be listed in our directory.
  • If your Company is not already listed, then you will have to set up a user account, and create a operator profile which will be associated to your User Account.
  • If your company is already listed, then you might only want associate the operator profile to your user account. Create a user account and contact us to make you the Operator contact.
  • If you are already a registered user and associated with the Hotspot Operator then you can skip this step.

>> Create a User Account on
>> Create a Operator Profile (must be logged in with your User Account)


Step 2: Create a csv data file

All Hotspot Data delivered to us for bulk inclusion in our database has to conform to our data format shown below.

The following table defines the fields which can be provided by the network operator (those marked with 'M' are mandatory). The first line of the csv file can contain the field names, the following lines have to contain columns with the field values.

A csv file containing a example location can be downloaded here: example.csv.

If you want to add pictures of your locations to your data then send us a file in 'zip' format, containing the images in JPEG format. We recommend a picture size of 800 by 600 pixels. Note that the maximum size for pictures is 100 KB. Larger files will be ignored. The IMGFILE field contains the name of the image file which you have included in the zip-File. This name will not be displayed on our web page and is for internal use only.

In the csv format ALL columns have to be included for every hotspot. Optional fields which are not defined or left empty must be represented by an empty field ;; in the record.
