Exporting Map Features (Android)

Last Updated: Sep 10, 2018 01:58PM EDT

Map features, such as placemarks, tracks,  lines, and areas can be exported for use in another device, or GIS software.  

Users can export map features directly from a map (one map at a time), or export all features at once from the Layers tab. 

Supported export formats
Currently, the following formats are supported for export:
 

  • KML/KMZ (placemarks, lines, tracks, and areas)
  • Shapefile* (placemarks, lines, tracks, and areas)
  • CSV (placemarks only)
  • GPX (placemarks, lines and tracks)
     

*Shapefiles require a Pro Subscription, as well as the appropriate files combined together in a ZIP folder in order to successfully import (.shp, .shx, .prj, and .dbf)


Export settings
You can export with the following options:
 

  • Filename - By default this will use the name of the map but can be changed to something more appropriate if required
  • Export Format
  • Media Size - This option is valid for data that has images attached to it, and if the appropriate data type is selected (KML/KMZ, or Shapefile*).  The Media Size options available are:
    • No Image
    • Small
    • Medium
    • Large
  • Export Visible Only - This option allows you to only export features that are visible.  It is an ideal way to only export certain layers or features if required
  • Export - This option will export the data and schema using the settings you designated to the storage location or email of your choice
  • Export Schema Only - This option will only export the attribute schema (no map features).  Please note that in order to use this option, the format must be KML/KMZ to be used in the app again
     

*Shapefiles require a Pro Subscription, as well as the appropriate files combined together in a ZIP folder in order to successfully import (.shp, .shx, .prj, and .dbf)
