Adding Local Vector Files

In MapStore you can add local vector files from your machine to the map.

Starting from a new map or an already existing map:

  • Click on the Burger menu button from the main menu bar.
  • Click on the ADD LOCAL VECTOR FILES option from the list .

A pop-up page will open where you can drop the vector files or to browse them from local folders by clicking on the container.


Shapfiles must be in a ZIP folder. Other supported files format are KML/KMZ and GPX.

  • Drop a zipped shapefile for example. Another pop-up page will open allowing you to set the style of the layer.

  • Click on Add. The shapefile will be added to the map.


For the moment, MapStore is not able to read the attribute table from local files thus widgets can not be created for the related layer.
