Fulcrum's data importer supports either shapefile or CSV format when you are importing data to create records in one of your apps.

Shapefiles are composed of minimally 3 separate files ā€”.shp, .shx, and .dbfā€”(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 shapefileā€™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.

Note: Fulcrum only supports point data for records. If you import a shapefile with line or polygon data a centroid will be created as used as the record location within Fulcrum.
