Can I import shapefiles?

Fulcrum supports importing data in either shapefile or CSV format.

Shapefiles are composed of minimally 3 separate files—.shp, .shx, and .dbf—(and usually more), all of which are required to create valid spatial data. To import into Fulcrum, create a .zip file containing all of the relevant shapefile pieces. They should all have the same base file name.

Once you have a .zip with your shapefile’s contents, upload to Fulcrum using the importer, and it will automatically extract and analyze your shapefile to process for import. Fulcrum will also attempt to reproject your file to a standard projection during import.
