- To add a custom map layer, click Add Custom Layer or drag and drop a JSON file from File Explorer to the Custom Maps area.
- Browse the Open dialog, and select a JSON file (for example, Mexico_States.json).
The JSON file must be a GeoJSON file that conforms to the standard specified in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeoJSON (the maximum file size allowed is 25MB).
Custom layers that use the Line String geometry type aren't fully supported. The Color and Size section on Visualization Grammar pane doesn't apply to line geometries.
- Click Open to display the Map Layer dialog.
- Enter a Name and an optional Description.
- Select the layer keys that you want to use from the Layer Keys list. The layer keys are a set of property attributes for each map feature, such as different codes for each state in Mexico. The layer keys originate from the JSON file. Where possible, select only the layer keys that correspond with your data.
- Click Add. A success message is displayed when the process is complete and the layer is added.
