Exporting Map Features (iOS)

Last Updated: Sep 10, 2018 11:45AM 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
  • Track Export (if applicable) - Lets you choose whether to export your track as a line or track
  • Data - This section lets you specify whether to export all the features, schema only, specific features/layers, or whether to include the map in the export**
  • 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 - This option will export the data using the settings you designated

*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)
**Exporting a map is only applicable via AirDrop, and when the map is a custom imported map (non-map store).  Map Store maps, and exporting custom maps to other sources (email, Dropbox, etc.) is NOT supported
