[IPT] IPT XML metadata

Hi IPT users,

I have recently uploaded occurrence data from a published article to the Pensoft IPT instance. In order to set-up an XML meta file, I used the Darwin Core Archive assistant and exported that XML file thinking that I would need it when I upload the resource to the IPT. But when I tried to map my columns on the IPT, I couldn't just upload that XML file and needed to select each column from a drop-down menu. This seems to me to be double work and I would rather like to use the XML meta file generated by the Darwin Core Archive assistant. This XML meta file had the columns arranged in a way so that they correspond to the exported occurrence data from my FileMaker Pro database.

Is there any way I can use the XML meta file for mapping columns?

Thanks, Torsten Dikow
