The token is a hexadecimal access code that allows the upload of imagery to the OAM database.
Administrators can create and manage tokens using the admin interface.
Since tokens are not tied to a specific user, a description allows the admin to keep track of the purpose of each one.
Tokens can have an expiracy date, a feature that is useful if the token is being generated, for example, for a mapping event. They can also be temporarily blocked and/or revoked when needed.
