RealEarth can ingest imagery and shape data.
Shape (point/line/polygon) formats:
.zip, .tar, and .gz archive formats are also supported.
Color enhancements and custom legends can be created by uploading McIDAS-X ET enhancements or custom legend definitions. Please see the Editing Products section for more information.
Before uploading product data a placeholder must be created on the target RealEarth VM. This ensures that the product will be directed to the appropriate location and the state of the product will have a suitable configuration prior to the initial directory. From the Product Manager, log in and click the Create new placeholder button to register a new product.
Files can be uploaded via a browser form.
