MapStand HUB allows you to share reports, conceptual notes, posters, spreadsheets, etc. A wide range of documents files can be hosted on the platform, including text files (.doc, .docx, .txt, .odt), spreadsheets (.xls, .xlsx, .ods), presentations (.ppt, .pptx, .odp), images (.gif, .jpg, .png, .tif, .tiff), PDF, zip files (.rar, .zip, .gz), SLD, XML or QML files.
Document uploading is accessible from two places:
the Upload Documents button of the Documents Search page (see Documents)
or from the Data menu > Upload Document link on the navigation bar
The Document Upload page looks like the one shown in the picture below.
In order to upload a document:
select a file from your disk or enter a URL address if the document is stored on the internet
insert the title of the document
select one or more published resources the document can be linked to (optional)
click the red Upload button
At the end of the uploading process you will be driven to the Metadata page to fill out other information about the document. See the next section to know more about that.
