Shapefile FAQ

  How large can my shapefile be?

User provided shapefiles are meant to cover smaller areas than a single state. Please contact our helpline if your Area of Interest is larger than a state and cannot be selected using the available geographies.

  How complex can my shapefile be?

This tool will run most efficiently with simplified shapes. Please dissolve your shape down to a single feature polygon.

  How do I upload my shapefile?

Zip all components of the shapefile and upload .zip file. Failure to zip all shapefile components will cause SoVI run to fail.
