After you register an account, and complete the essential onboarding steps, you are ready to begin creating and managing DBYD enquiries and responses with SmarterWX Locate.

Until you create your first enquiry, your search map will appear empty. That’s because there are no dig sites available to explore. Create an enquiry to verify everything is working.
