Write Vector Services Overview


Aside from the vectors that are already being ingested into the vector index, users may have vectors of their own that they would like to visualize in the index, and easily pass to other users. To do this, we have vector write services. Vector write can be done via shapefile ingest or api writes of json formatted vectors. Json formatted vectors may be written via either synchronous and asynchronous methods, and users specify the index for their own provided vectors. Shapefile ingested vectors must be zipped with a mapping file when sent; shapefiles are limited to one SHP per zipped file. Vector generation is useful for direct additions of or updates to vectors, without needing a third party service or a vector submission request form.
