How was the hotspot update?
1- The eduroam service providers sent a spreadsheet with all new, updated or removed access points, as shown below:
2 - RNP checked in a web locator if the information was correct, carried out the inclusion of each information in an xml file and later made it available in a folder with web access for reading from monitor.eduroam.org .
How was it after Marker eduroam?
1 - The service provider marks the location of the access point on the map, fills in some information and sends it for approval.
2 - RNP approves the point or sends a comment requesting correction;
3 - Then update the xml. At this point, a new file is generated and made available for reading from the monitor.eduroam.org.
