  6. From this dialog, you will notice each field has a drop down menu next to it. The field name on the far left is the field MAEviz expects to find in your dataset and the drop down menu next to the field contains all of the fields in your dataset that you could map it tooto. Select the appropriate mappings (e.g. as we mentioned above, you could map s_type to struct_typ). For some fields, there will also be a unit type drop down selection (e.g. dollars for building value). Currently, if other currency types besides dollar and turkish lira are required we will need to add the conversion to MAEviz. When finished, click Next.
  7. If other fields are present, the next dialog screen will give you some options to assign friendly names and units to those fields. You can safely ignore this and click the Next button. You should now see the dialog below.
