A vector layer file can be added to the GISLayer software. To do this, you can upload files in the formats that GISLayer software offers you. We offer two different methods for adding vector file. The first of these methods, as shown in the screenshot below is by clicking the “Add File” button under the “Data” tab. The other method is to drag and drop the file to be loaded onto the map.

Method 1: Adding with “Add File”” Button

Step 1: Selecting a File Type

Click the “Add File” button under the “Data” tab.

After you click Add File button as shown in the screenshot software offers you some file format options. In addition to the options offered, the program also shows shortcuts. These options are;

  • SHP File
  • KML File
  • KMZ File
  • GeoJSON File
  • WKT File
  • GPX File
  • NCN File
  • DXF File
  • Excel File
  • GeoTIFF File

When you select one of these file formats, the next step enables you to specify the projection of the file.
