Uploaded data

Upload and work with your own geodata in Urbi Pro service.

The ability to download data depends on the tariff.

To upload your own data:

  1. Prepare a data file.
  2. Upload the data to the service.

Supported territories:

  • Iraq (partially)
  • Bahrain
  • Qatar
  • Kuwait
  • UAE
  • Oman
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Format: .csv, .csv.gz, .geojson, .geojson.gz, or .shp.zip.
  • Size: up to 100 MB.
  • Encoding: UTF-8.
  • Coordinate System: WGS84(4326).
  • Available geometry types:

    • Point
    • LineString
    • Polygon
    • MultiPoint
    • MultiLineString
    • MultiPolygon

    FeatureCollection and GeometryCollection are not supported.

    The file must contain only one geometry type.

  • Data in .csv, .csv.gz, .geojson, or .geojson.gz formats must include a column with geometry information in one of the following formats:

    • WKT (Well-known text).
    • Latitude/longitude as floating-point numbers (only for point objects).

    Use only one column for specifying geometry.

  • Data archive in .shp format (shapefile) must contain the .shp, .dbf, .shx, and .prj files (.sbn and .cpg are optional).

  • Any additional columns with information about objects are allowed.
  • Additional columns can be used as filters. The maximum number of filters is 40.
  • The number of unique values in a filter is not more than 30.
  • When setting field aliases, you can use digits, letters, characters " ", ".", "_", "$", round brackets. Do not use a comma when setting field aliases.

Data preparation can be done in any GIS software, with programming languages, or in Excel (point objects only).

Upload data on main page
  1. Go to the Main or Data tab.

  2. Click Upload data.

  3. Drag a file to the download area or Select a file on a computer.

  4. Click Upload.

  5. After the upload is finished, click Next.

  6. Specify the dataset name. Requirements:

    • The length can be up to 50 characters.
    • Can contain letters, numbers, spaces, and special characters.
  7. Configure the data attributes if necessary.

    At least one field with coordinates must be selected.

  8. Click Create a dataset.

    The data will appear in the Uploaded Data section.

You can work with uploaded data like other data types. To visualize the data, create a layer.

Configure the data attributes

After uploading the file, the service will automatically generate an attribute structure for the dataset. To change the structure:

  • Select the checkbox next to the desired row so that the attribute is included in the final data set.

  • Specify the field name in the Title column.

  • Select the attribute type in the Type column:

    • Latitude
    • Longitude
    • WKT: geometry field
    • Name
    • Attribute
  • Select the Filter type for the attribute:

    • Select box
    • Multiple choice from the list
    • Numerical range
    • Text filter


If you cancel the attribute setup or close its window, the data set will not disappear from the library – its card will be displayed with a note about the need to set up attributes. You will only be able to work with the data set after performing attribute settings.

  1. Hover the cursor over the uploaded data card.
  2. Click Uploaded data options icon and select Rename.
  1. Hover the cursor over the uploaded data card.
