Uploading Documents

GeoNode allows 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.


Only authenticated users can upload data into GeoNode.

Documents uploading is accessible from two positions:

  • the Upload Documents button of the Documents Search page (see Documents)


    Documents Upload button

  • the Upload Document link of the Data menu in the navigation bar


    Document Upload link

The Document Upload page looks like the one shown in the picture below.
