GeoAnalytics Shapefile issue

Hello All -

I'm trying to use a shapefile with a GeoAnalytics map. I've tried to follow Patric's step by step guide, but keep getting this error:

2017-12-28_12-44-38.png

I've tried a shapefile that I've created and one downloaded from ESRI with the same result. Any thoughts on what I might be missing?

The ZIP file has the following files in it:

PodMap.dbf

PodMap.prj

PodMap.sbn

PodMap.sbx

PodMap.shp

PodMap.shx


thanks,


mike

Re: GeoAnalytics Shapefile issue

Hi Michael,

Make sure that the link is public accessible and provides direct access to the zip file and not a preview page with download button. Try in for example in incognito browser window.

For dropbox replace http://www with http://dl. ...

Thanks,

Patric

Thanks, Patric!

the only difference is that I changed the link at the end from 0 to 1:
