Introducing Data Forks

A fork is a copy of data that has already been imported onto the Koordinates platform. Forks are useful for creating bespoke copies of imported data, without making changes the 'master,' or source, data item. 

Koordinates supports a growing range of operations that can be applied during the forking process. These include:
