It's easy.

Update: it's now possible to add content quickly and easily from OpenStreetMap. See: Linking Pleiades to OpenStreetMap.

Just use the following steps:

  • Login (if you don't have an account, you should request one)
  • Navigate to the place of interest
  • Click the "Add location" button
  • Fill out the form
  • Click "Save"
  • Select "State:drafting" and change to "Submit for review"
 
In filling out the form, try to make sure at least the following items are complete:
 
  • On the "Default" tab:
    • Title
    • Description
    • Association certainty
    • Temporal attestation
  • On the "Coordinates" tab:
    • Geometry (NB: in our notation, longitudes comes before latitudes ... that's the opposite of Google Earth!)
    • Positional Accuracy Assessment
  • If you've copied the coordinates from another source, you must cite it on the "References" tab
