Download Layer Data

Within Exchange, there are two ways to extract data and metadata, download a layer or download a layer’s metadata. This facilitates the flow of geospatial data in (import) and out (export) of Exchange.

Download data

  1. Click the Download Layer button.
  2. Select the format in which you’d like the data to be downloaded. Exchange currently offers the following formats for use in multiple geospatial platforms:

View a layer on the map

If a layer has been saved to a map, the names of the map(s) using the layer will be listed.

Click the Create a Map button to open the layer in the map viewer.

You can also simply click the Open in Map Viewer button. The map will open, and the layer will be available in the layers list.
