Exporting and syncing data
Once you are finished creating and editing data in Territory mode, you may export your data to a
.GeoJSONfile format. This is a commonly used file format which can be opened using other GIS or cartography software or platforms such as QGIS, Mapbox Studio, or ArcGIS.
To export territory data, click on the
Export map data button on the top right of your screen, and select Export Territory Data as GeoJSON. Next, in the pop-up window, rename and save the
.GeoJSONfile where you want.
Note: this will export all of your territory data at once. There currently is no way to export a selection of your territory data.
It is possible to synchronize data created using
Mapeo Desktop Territory mode with other devices:
- If twoMapeo Desktop devices synchronize with each other in theMapeo Desktop Synchronize mode, they will each exchange all of their territory data (as well as the observation data) with each other.
- If aMapeo Desktop device (computer 1) synchronizes with aMapeo Mobile device (phone 1), then that Mapeo Mobile device will receive all of the territory data from theMapeo Desktop device, and will store this data. The Mapeo Mobile device will not display this data on the map nor show any of the features in the Observations list screen. However:
- When thisMapeo Mobile device synchronizes with anotherMapeo Desktop device (computer 2), it will share all of the territory data from that first device (computer 1), and the second device will be able to see, edit, export, and synchronize that data as well.
- When thisMapeo Mobile device (phone 1) synchronizes with anotherMapeo Mobile device (phone 2), that second device (phone 2) will receive all of the territory data that was synchronized with the first device (phone 1), but won’t be able to see it or edit it. Thesecond Mapeo Mobile device (phone 2) may now synchronize this data with other Mapeo devices.
Note: Synchronized territory data will also include any external geospatial data that was added to Mapeo Territory mode; see Importing and using external geospatial data.
