Places has been extended to support the display of map layers via ESRI shapefile. This means you can now include layers in your consultation maps either via the existing WMS layers, or through the newly implemented shapefile upload. 

Getting there is quite simple:

  1. Ensure the shapefile is in a zipped (.zip) folder and at the very least includes files of the following types
    • .prj
    • .shp
    • .dbp
    • .xml
  2. Navigate to the map in which you want to upload your shapefile
  3. Enable the GIS layer
  4. Upload the ZIP file as shown below

Only one layer can be displayed at a time and you can upload layers to already existing maps.
