✨Note: These files should contain an ID and name. That is every polygon/point must have a unique ID and a name that will be visible when we layer is added.
Once you upload the file, we have to fill the following details in order to create the layer.
Creating a new layer
The required fields are:
Layer name: This is the name given to the layer by the user. By default, it is the same as the file's name. For example, it could be named as NewYork Boundaries, London Bays and so on.
Layer Geo Type: The user has to choose the type of the layer. We can choose between:
Area Name Column: This is the name of the column in your file where all the names of the polygons/points are listed. The names of these polygons/points will be shown when the user hovers over the polygon.
In the image the polygon selected is named "A".
Unique ID Column: This is the name of the column in your file where the unique of ID of the polygons are listed.
✨Note: You can also autogenerate the unique IDs on Locale without adding an extra column.
