The Geo Share is a shared central repository for files and (geographical) data, hosted on the Tygron Platform. It is linked to an individual Domain, but exists separate from active Sessions. This allows for the sharing of data, either input data or results from calculations, without the overhead of a full Project's data or a running Session.

The Geo Share supports uploading, downloading, renaming and deleting files, as well as setting up a file structure to organize them.

All users with Editor rights can access and update all files on the Geo Share.

Access

Files uploaded to the Geo Share can be accessed via a url. The url allows anyone to access the file at any time. The url can be used in a webbrowser to initiate a download of the file (or provide an in-browser overview of the contents of a directory).

On a per-file and per-directory basis, it is possible to set a required access token. Although to access a file or directory a url must be known in the first place, requiring an access token provides an additional secret which must be known in order to access the data.

When a directory is accessed in a web browser, all direct contents of the directory are displayed, including those which actually also require an access token. However, only contents which do not require an access token can be directly accessed from that overview.

Notes

  • The url for any file, directory, or viewer, contains the name of the file and the name of the domain in which the original file was uploaded.
  • To reset the access token for any file, disable and re-enable the token for the file. A new token will be generated.
