Sign up and manage an account

A Koordinates account—known as Koordinates ID—is a universal authentication system for all sites on the Koordinates platform. 

Your Koordinates ID allows you to:

  • Export data;
  • Receive permission to access private data that has been shared;
  • View your site activity; and,
  • Get an API key to use APIs and web services.

In this guide, we outline how to sign up for a Koordinates ID, and then change your account details and password.
