Vectorial layers to export

List of the vectoral layers to export. Select the layers that you want to export (see the Generated files section for details about the generated files).

Save parameters

Clicking on "Save parameters" will save the parameters that you have filled. For each QGIS project the parameters are saved. The password is never saved.

Export

Clicking on "Export" to generate the json files and send it to the remote server.

Generated files

For a vectorial layer with the name 'my_vectorial_layer', two files will be generated :

  • my_vectorial_layer.geojson
  • my_vectorial_layer_alias.geojson

The file my_vectorial_layer.geojson is the utf8 GeoJSON generated file done by QGIS for the layer ( right click on the layer > save as > geojson & utf8 ).

The file my_vectorial_layer_alias.geojson is a "map" between attibutes table columns names and alias. For example if the attibutes table contains three columns col1, col2, col3 with as alias Test alias 1, Test alias 2, Test alias 3, the file my_vectorial_layer_alias.geojson will be the following :

{
    "col2": "Test alias 2",
    "col3": "Test alias 3",
    "col1": "Test alias 1",
}
