How to download diagrams and designs as Shapefiles


In this article, we will describe how to download data from your project.

Geodesignhub enables export of all data out of the platform using GeoJSON or Shapefiles. GeoJSON exports are supported by the extensive API, however you will require some basic programming knowledge. All data can be taken out of your project using the API. This article does not cover the API exports however, there are two easy ways to download key data as Shapefiles to use in any GIS application. They are below:

  • To download individual diagrams you can use the Diagrams Downloader plugin, you can add this free plugin by going to the “Administration” section of your project and adding it from the Plugins Section of the Administration page. If you do not have access to the administration section, please contact your project administrator who can then add it to the project.


  • To download a design, you need to go to the “Synthesis Comparison” section and then you can go to “Design History” and load the appropriate change team and then download the shapefile.
