Exporting Map Features (Android)

Last Updated: May 04, 2018 10:12AM EDT

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

New in v3.5 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 import:
 

  • KML/KMZ 
  • Shapefile*
  • CSV
  • GPX
     

*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
  • Send-To (Destination) - This is where the data will be sent to.  Options include:
    • Device Storage (internal or SD card)
    • Email - when selected, you can also access any external apps that support file transfer and storage (e.g. Google Drive, etc.)
    • Dropbox
  • 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
  • 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)
