Importing Geospatial Data¶
You can import geospatial data into the MapD Core Database using MapD Immerse. Supported formats include
.shp (which requires that you upload a group of three files with the extensions
.dbf). Currently, MapD supports definitions of polygons only.
To import geospatial data:
- Open MapD Immerse.
- Click New Dashboard.
- Click Import Data.
- Click the large
+icon to select files for upload, or drag and drop the files to the Data Importer screen.
- Wait for the uploads to complete (indicated by green checkmarks on the file icons), then click Import Files.
- On the Table Preview screen, edit column headers (if needed), enter a name for the table in the field at the bottom of the screen, and click Save Table.
- On the Table Metadata screen, verify the rows and columns that comprise your data table.
