  • Access to the MapGeo Console Uploader


While MapGeo is very flexible, there are certain requirements for data that will be used in the site. All data loaded via the MapGeo Console Uploader must be web-ready, and should not need additional processing to display as desired. 


  • Consistent Schema - All data loaded must match the current schema of data in your site. As long as the attributes’ names for the required fields have remained the same, the data will load without issues. 

    • To ensure the validity of data loaded, the Console performs checks on the data before uploading it to MapGeo. 

    • If required fields are missing or are completely null, the data will not load. You will receive an error message indicating the error present in the data.

  • Generalize Data - Data with arcs or Bézier curves will need to be generalized or exported to shapefiles before loading. 

  • Linking Fields - MapGeo uses an intersection table to link data with a one-to-many relationship. This table can be created using the uploader when uploading data. 

    • Data that needs to be linked with another table or layer must have linking fields calculated. For example, CAMA records that will be linking to parcels, must contain a field that will enable MapGeo to link a CAMA record to a parcel.

  • Accepted file types - The uploader accepts the following formats:

    • .geojson

    • .json

    • .shp - When uploading shapefiles, select these 3 files that make up the shapefile (.shp, .dbf. prj)

    • .csv

Helpful Hints

  • The MapGeo Console Uploader can only be used to refresh previously loaded data, not upload new data to the system. Contact the MapGeo team to add new data to your MapGeo site.
