The Study Abroad Directory mapping utility allows a site to translate the values from the Study Abroad Directory site to its own equivalent values so that programs that have been subscribed to do not need to have their parameters, terms, and locations updated manually.
However, should your site not have compatible values for the Study Abroad Directory options, these parameters can be left as unmapped. It will not affect the site's ability to download the other elements of the linked program. Unmapped parameter (and unmapped parameter values) will simply be skipped over during the installation process. The values of the linked program will still appear in the program builder's terms, locations, and parameters tab at the top of the interface so that the appropriate values can be set by an administrator on your site.
