How can I import an imagery file to Geolantis.360 projects?

Import World File Imagery to a Project

The following guide shows how to import raster data/imagery to projects step by step:

A) Create a new Project

  1. Go to the Projects page (Master Data > Projects).
  2. Create a new project.
  3. Define necessary project metadata and select a proper EPSG  spatial reference (for example, use EPSG 2056 for projects located in Geneva).
  4. Click on Save & Close.

B) Upload Imagery Zipped Folder

Note that the zipped folder must contain two file types with the exact file name. The world file extension might differ depending on the imagery file type. For example, a world file of a JPG imagery must have the extension [.jgw], while a world file of a TIF imagery must have the extension [.tfw].


1. In the Projects page, click on Import Geodata and browse to the imagery zipped folder.

2. Once the import tool detects the file type ‘World File’ choose the pre-created project from the list and click Next.

3. Select the project EPSG code and click ‘Import’.

The import will be completed and a Success notification will show up.


      Note that it might be the case that the file will load at zoom-level 18 if imported as a basemap. To check this configuration, got to in Feature Classes page (GIS > Feature Classes)

B) Check the Imported Data

  1. Check the imported data on the Features page (GIS > Features).
  2. Select the project containing the imported data.
  3. Activate the World File layer.

      To see the imagery correctly, ensure that you reach the zoom level which is specified in the World File feature class  metadata. Be patient while the tiles are loading for first time as Geolantis map engine creates tiles cache files. Panning the map where the tiles are located can speed up loading the tiles faster.
