1.5. How to upload data

Raster and vector geodata are uploaded to Web GIS by creation of resources Raster layer and Vector layer.

1.5.1. Raster data

  1. Open Resource group where you want to create a data layer (by default from the main page of Web GIS you can access Main resource group);
  2. Select Create resource ‣ Raster layer on the right side of Web GIS admin console;
  3. In the opened dialog fill in the field Display name in Resource tab and select a file with raster geodata in Raster layer tab;
  4. Press Create button. If Raster layer is created successfully you’ll see its name in Child resources pane of the relevant Resource group.

Warning

Only upload of GeoTIFF files with 3 or 4 bands (RGB or RGBA) is supported.

If you plan to display Raster layer on Web map or publish it using WMS protocol you need to create Style for it.

1.5.2. Vector data

  1. Open Resource group where you want to create a data layer (by default from the main page of Web GIS you can access Main resource group);
  2. Select Create resource ‣ Vector layer on the right side of Web GIS admin console;
  3. In the opened dialog fill in the field Display name in Resource tab, then select a file with vector geodata and specify its encoding in Vector layer tab;
  4. Press Create button. If Vector layer is created successfully you’ll see its name in Child resources pane of the relevant Resource group.

Warning

Only upload of ESRI Shape files (zip-archived, UTF-8 or Windows-1251) and GeoJSON files (UTF-8) is supported. Uploaded files can’t inculde mixed or invalid geometries, dates can’t have NULL values, attributes’ columns can’t have the following names: id(ID), geom(GEOM). ESRI Shapefiles can’t include multigeometries.

Note

You can also upload raster and vector geodata to Web GIS with desktop app NextGIS QGIS.
