Exporting one or multiple features to .kml (Google Earth) or .shp

Exporting a Single Feature:

From within the feature map, click the layer button (1), then the three dots next to the layer you want to export (2) and click 'Export Data' (3).  For example, if you'd like to export the geography of a single issue, navigate to that issue within Landscape and use the map on the right.  Similarly, if you want to export the geography of a single site visit, navigate directly to that site visit and export from there.



Choose 'KML File (Google Earth)'


Exporting Multiple Features

1.  Exporting Multiple Instances of a Feature

To export all of a certain type of feature associated with a Property or Stewardship Site (for example, all site visit geography for a single stewardship site), first navigate to that Stewardship Site or Property.

From the Map on the right, add the geography that you want to export.  For example: Issue Geography.  Since all of the issues associated with that Stewardship Site will be added to the map, you will also be able to export those features together.

Follow the same steps as above to export the features as a .kml file.


2. Exporting all Parcels, Properties, or Stewardship Sites

From any map, add 'All Parcels', 'All Properties', or 'All Stewardship Sites'.  In the map, zoom out so that the extent includes all of the features you want to export.  As in exporting a single feature, click on the three dots to the left of the layer and select 'Export Data'. Select 'KML (Google Earth).


The export will include all of the features that are within view.


3. Exporting map data from a view

This method can be particularly useful if you want to export certain fields as attributes within your shapefile.  

From a view (like 'All Stewardship Sites') select the fields that you want to export with the shapefile. Here I've added Name, Staff Lead, Status, Property Interests, Size, Team Contacts, Property Categories, and ID (an internal field for distinguishing unique Stewardship Sites).




Click on the three dots and select 'Display as Map':




Click on the three dots next to the layer you want to export (in this case 'outer stewardship site boundary') and select 'Export Data'.  Choose the appropriate option and click 'OK'.




The data will then be exported to the format you chose. The fields you selected to be visible will be exported along with other standard geography fields.  The following screenshot shows the attribute table of a Stewardship Site export (from QGIS):
