I am trying to add a point theme shapefile after compressed it into a zip format in Map viewer but everytime it gives an error "Unable to import this shapefile". if I add the file in csv format then it gives an error "File does not seem to contain fields with point coordinates".

I cannot add a zipped shape file either.  I have tried it plenty of times in the past and it has NEVER worked.  This time I have a point shp file of 800 records, and it will not add to a web map.  I had a co-worker try it and he can get a subset of my points to load up fine (~400 points), but if he tries 750 points it doesn't work.

Gordon,

Your zip file contains a folder that contains the shapefile files... the zip file should just contain the shapefile files without the extra folder hierarchy.

Thanks,

I am having trouble importing pline shape file, the error gives me no information why.  The shp has less than 1000 features and has the four needed files.

Thanks

What web browser are you using?
Can you share your shapefile here so we can test it?

Thanks,

I am getting the "unable to import this shapefile" message and can't figure out why. I have tried 2 different shapefiles with less than 1,000 features.

Linda,

You have the same problem as Gordon above...

Your zip file contains a folder that contains the shapefile files... the zip file should just contain the shapefile files without the extra folder hierarchy.


Thanks,

Mike
