I'm new to GIS and downloaded ArcGISExplorer to decide if I need the full ArcGIS product. I have received several shapefiles from colleagues but I'm unable to load them in the Explorer. I have files with extensions .dbf, .prj, .sbn, .sbx and .shx. However, when I click Add Content:Shapefiles, and navigate to the folder only the .shp file can be uploaded. This creates a boundary, but no metadata.
Any advice or help would be much appreciated.
