you to both download and upload geographies

into its map section, which is a great

way to work on them throughout multiple sessions

section in the toolbar.

You have the option to enter a geography

using the geography tool at the top of the page,

visualize your target area. This

can be a specific state city or

other area of interest,

customize your view to ensure you are including

every point of interest.

Once your geography is loaded onto the map,

expand the download geography section

and download using the SHP

Esri as zip format.

Keep this file zipped to upload

it back into the system at a later time

to upload a save geography, select

the upload geography, drop down and

choose the SHP ESRI

When the file name appears in the window, select

the circle next to the name and select

the make geography button.
