Geojson usage

Hello,

I noted a new feature on Map view-settings, where there is a possibility to drag and drop a .geojson file onto the marked place (to make the usage comfortable).
It is a great idea to have a custom layer for marking the airports, so I downloaded it from Oracle Analytics Library. (see the attachment)

I tried to drop the file to the marked place but nothing happened. Not even an error message popped.

Hi Janos,

It seems the GeoJSON file you're using consists of Point geometry, whereas the the GeoJSON functionality currently only supports Line/MultiLine/Polygon/MultiPolygon geometry. We'd like to expand this in the future (although I can't promise a timeline) and I will certainly make a note of this use-case going forward.

Hi Nial,

Thank you for the precise answer. :)

As a user, I don’t really need to get a web interface that includes the latest technology for customization - as long as the features already built in are sufficient.
I guess, not everyone thinks the same way, but - for me - the directly available geojson option isn’t so important. If it works invisibly in the background (under the hood), it can also be a good solution.
If there was a map version that also displayed airports in the current offer, - or a layer that could be turned on - I wouldn’t have tried the geojson feature mentioned.

Keep it simple! :)

Best regards,
Janos
