This is an archive related to a previous version of Esri Maps for SharePoint. If you need the current version go to http://doc.arcgis.com/en/maps-for-sharepoint/.
SharePoint lists can contain columns that store the geographic location of each item as latitude and longitude. Spatially enabling such lists so they can display on the Map Web Part requires adding and configuring a new Esri Maps Location type column in the list. Once the Esri Maps Location field has been added, the list can be added to the Map Web Part; you do not need to run the entire Esri Maps Locate workflow.
To add an Esri Maps Location field to a list, complete the following steps:
The List Settings page appears.
The Create Column page appears.
