Course Overview

Importing and Exporting Data

This course will demonstrate how to import and export data using Boundless Exchange. Spatial data can be uploaded to Exchange in order to create maps and share information with others. Once a dataset is uploaded, a layer can be created and shared. The user can edit the metadata for any uploaded layer, set viewing permissions, or add it to groups or maps. Layers can also be downloaded or accessed via a WMS URL. Users can view the layer attributes, rate the data, as well as add comments to the data set.

In order to complete this course, you must have a fully configured Exchange instance. The data used within this course has been created specifically for training purposes. Your data sets and maps will be different from the course, but you should be able to follow along easily. If you are interested in obtaining your own instance of Exchange, please contact Boundless here.
