Spatial Vector files

Spatial Vector files we support: .shp, .mif, .mid, .tab, .kml, .gpx, .dxf, SQLite.

When importing vector files, make sure you upload all the mandatory parts; for example, a shapefile consists of these files: .shp, .shx, .dbf, and .prj. 

If the layer doesn’t fit the map, please check if the projection file is valid and uploaded to GIS Cloud.

Spatial Raster files

Spatial Raster files we support: .tif, .tiff, .jpg, .png, .gif, .img, .ecw, .sid, .jp2

GIS Cloud supports multiband (RGB 8-bit and 16-bit) and single-band rasters. A more in-depth look at working with single-band rasters is available here . Also, if you wish to upload 16-bit raster, some tweaking is needed.

If the raster is not georeferenced, don’t forget to upload the projection file too. If the raster doesn’t have the projection file, it won’t fit the map.

Image files

Image files we support: .jpg, .gif, .swf, .png, .img, .ecw, .sid, .jp2

We support Excel 2003 and CSV files (.csv and .xls).
