Almost all data can be imported in the Tygron Platform, as long as the data is about specific locations and contains geometry (and therefore coordinates). Thus basically when the data is Geo data. There are different methods for importing Geo data. The method to choose is based on how you have your data available, as vector or raster data and/or what the data represents.

Vector data

With the Geo data wizard you can easily import vector data. The wizard also helps you to transform your data to the proper format for importing. There are four different import methods:

  1. with a GeoJSON file
  2. with a Scene layer package (SLPK) file for 3D data
  3. through a Web Feature Service (WFS)
  4. through a Catalogue Service for the Web (CSW). Note that with this option you can also log in to your ArcGIS Online organization or ArcGIS Enterprise portal to add data to your project.

Choose a method based on how and where you have your data available.

Raster data

There are two different import methods:

  1. through a Web Map Service (WMS).
  2. as a GeoTIFF Overlay

Choose a method based on how you have your data available.


It is possible to import a spatial plan into the Tygron Platform, either for visualization or to calculate the effects on the surroundings. When importing a 2D plan, the Tygron Platform models corresponding with the chosen Functions will be used to visualize the plan. When importing 3D models, the actual model, including textures, will be imported.


The following requirements for vector and raster data apply:

  • The Geo dataset should have a CRS (Coordinate Reference System) defined, for the Tygron Platform to properly translate the coordinates to the right location.
  • Vector data: Geo data in the Tygron Platform are always polygons. Line and point features are not allowed by the Tygron Platform. The data wizards helps you by buffering the line and point features to polygons.
  • Vector data: all desired attributes must be numerical, so that they can be loaded as valid attribute values. Non-numeric attributes are ignored when attempting to load them as attributes.
