    • The file will show in the list and will display a status of Success, Error, or Completed with Errors

      • Completed with Errors: Partial success. There were some fields that were not loaded in due to invalid Boundaries

      • Error: No Records Recognized

      • Success: All Records Recognized and Processed

Accepted Formatting of the Shapefiles:


**There are currently no limitations for file size or number of columns**

  • LineStrings or MultilineStrings are not supported. We consider that the Boundary must be a closed polygon to be recognized as valid.

  • Files that do not match our accepted Attribute headers 

File compression accepted for upload

Field geometry must be uploaded as ESRI Shapefiles compressed as a ZIP. Nested .zip files are supported as long as there is not a directory within the structure. See supported examples below:

Attribute header names supported

NOTE: If the file only contains a Field name we will still accept the boundaries and automatically name the Grower and Farm with the Organization Name.

  1. Grower:

    1. "growername", "grower_name", "grower name", "grower", "clientname", "client_name", "client name", "client", "customername", "customer_name", "customer name", "customer", "businessnam", "business_nam", "business"

  2. Farm:

    1. "farmname", "farm_name", "farm name", "farm"
