Import KML/KMZ, GeoJSON & ESRI Shapefiles

Add territories and their data/metrics from KML or GeoJSON files. Auto-assignment is fully supported.

Add territories from a KML or GeoJSON file. Combine GeoJSON features into one territory or create multiple ones, one per feature. Import data properties, such as text fields or numeric metrics, that can used to colorize imported territories.

You can also import KMZ and ESRI Shapefile files by first converting them to KML or GeoJSON using an external converter. (Direct import of KMZ and Shapefiles will be available in 2022.)

When a KML file is imported as one territory, Mapsly also retains all non-polygonal KML data like lines, popups and custom styles. When imported as multiple territories, non-polygonal data except data properties are not imported.

How to import GeoJSON file

Before importing a file, consider creating a new territory group. While you can import territories into the pre-existing Default group, if you’d like to have (import) data fields, share territories with others, or control their properties from one place, you’ll need to create a territory group.

Select file & import settings

Choose the file and indicate whether to import all its polygonal features into one territory or create a territory per feature.

Choose naming template & group

When importing multiple territories, indicate how the territory names should be formed: you may use an optional prefix and either a common data property or an auto-increment.

Map data fields

If you’d like to import data from the file as well, indicate from which file feature property to import data to which territory data field.
