Add Existing File tool of IGISMap

The applications of GIS tools are expanding in the field of business, research, defense, etc. Thus the features and tools of every GIS software are updating abruptly for helping users in these industries to get the right information by performing complex analyses over GIS data. But working with most of the GIS software in the market requires adequate training and dense knowledge in geospatial concepts.

That is where IGISMap is useful. IGISMap is GIS based web platform providing multiple GIS applications that are most important in the field of geospatial analytics. The peculiarity of IGISMAP in the GIS Industry is its UI/UX that helps the user to perform effortless geospatial operations. In this article, we will discuss Add Existing File tool of IGISMap.

In IGISMap, GIS data is uploaded, created, edited and worked on a map. A map is a spatial interface that supports GIS data and give access to various tools to perform geospatial operations. As a user of IGISMap, you can create any number of maps and add GIS data of any formats.

Add Existing File is a tool that keeps the list of all data that are available on every map in your IGISMap account. Users can open this tool directly from the map or from the dashboard to view the list of data that are published in the maps. You can select any data from the list, preview it and add that data to the map. Thus you dont have to take effort on uploading the data again if it is available in any map.
