Steps

Identify the latitude and longitude coordinates for each plant site.

You can use Google maps for this, just right click and click "What's Here" and a card will appear at the bottom with the lat/long.

Edit Your Tags to associate lat/long

Using the Admin portal, edit your Tag Dictionary. Note this requires MS Office 365 / online Excel.
