6. Upload vector files to a map
After creating a vector map (click here to see how), you can start adding VECTOR LAYERS.
Go to MAP SETTINGS and click ADD LAYER. Give the new layer a name and click SAVE THE NEW LAYER at the top right corner of your screen. You may keep adding any number of layers.
To upload new features, select your target layer and click on the upload icon or the UPLOAD NEW FEATURES link in the pop-up.
Here, you need to select whether there is an ESPG code in the file, or if you need to specify one manually. If the ESPG is not specified in the file, choose SPECIFY and type the right code into the space provided.
Now all that is left to do is to drop your file into the designated box. You may drop it in any number of files before clicking UPLOAD at the bottom right of your screen. Now you are done
NOTE: When uploading a .csv, the file needs to include an 'x' and 'y' (and an optional 'z') column for longitude, latitude, and (optionally) height respectively. When uploading a Shape file, you need to drop in the full zip (not just the file with .shp extension).
NOTE: The EPSG code is required for a successful upload because it tells us what coordinate system your file is using. Please see epsg.io for more information on which code is applicable to your data.
