Quick Steps for publishing a new map to MangoMap

Supported Data and Styles

The MangoMap publishing capabilities support the following data:

Raster file uploads are limited to no larger than 2GB uncompressed and no larger than 1GB compressed. Raster data downloaded from Online Sources is not supported for export to MangoMap.
  • Vector - All supported vector data is converted to shapefile format before upload to MangoMap.
    • 2D Point Styles - supports basic shapes such as dot, square, vertical bar, cross, diagonal cross, start, triangle and diamond are supported. In some cases there is no match for the symbol in Mango supported style definitions.
    • Line Styles - supports solid and some dash or dot patterns of lines, with the lines themselves colored, but no background colors.
    • Area Styles - supports no fill and solid fill areas. There is also some interpolation of hatch fill patterns, but they may not appear exactly as they do in Global Mapper.
