Exporting data & sharing externally

This section covers the available options and formats for exporting data from Observations mode in Mapeo Desktop.

In Mapeo Desktop you can view your data as a report. Each page of the report contains the details of one observation. From the Report view, you can:

  • Control which observations are included in the report using the Filters panel. For more on filtering, see Filter observations.

To export your observation data as .GeoJSON:

  1. Select Export observations...

3. In the Export Observations pop-up window:

  • For the Data format field, select GeoJSON.

  • In the Only filtered data or all data? field, choose if you want the exported file to contain only filtered data or all data.

  • In the Also export photos? field, choose between including no photos, full-size photos, or preview-size photos in the exported file.

4. Click on SAVE.

5. In the pop-up window, give a name to the .GeoJSON file and choose where to save it. Once you are done, click on Save.

You can now load and use this file in mapping software.

To export your observation data as .csv:

  1. Select Export observations...

3. In the Export Observations pop-up window:

  • For the Data format field, select CSV.

  • In the Only filtered data or all data? field, choose if you want the exported file to contain only filtered data or all data.

  • In the Also export photos? field, choose between including no photos, full-size photos, or preview-size photos in the exported file.

4. Click on SAVE.

5. In the pop-up window, give a name to the .csv file and choose where to save it. Once you are done, click on Save.

You can now load and use this file in other software.

This is a useful export option if you want to publish an interactive online map with the observation data. To export observation data to a Web Map:

Create a Mapeo Web Package file

  1. Select Export Webmap...

  2. In the pop-up window, give a title and a description to the map and click on SAVE.

4. In the pop-up window, give a name to the Mapeo Web Package (.mapeomap) file and choose where to save it. Once you are done, click on SAVE.

Publish your map online

  1. Go to the website maps.mapeo.app and sign in or sign up. It's free and you only need an e-mail account and a password.

  2. Click on + ADD MAP.

3. In the pop-up window, navigate in your computer's file system to locate the Mapeo Web Package (.mapeomap) file. Select it and click on Open. Wait until the uploading process is complete.

5. Copy the URL link of the online map to share it with other people
