Confluence Retirement

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is scheduled for retirement on January 27th, 2023. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Spatial Data Batch Uploads

Spatial Data Batch Upload Rules

  • Polygons for the same operator can only overlap one another by 5% or less
  • Polygons for two different operators can overlap with no maximum percentage; however, the most current polygon will appear as the top layer and the owner of this polygon’s acreage summaries will be affected accordingly
    • NOTE: If the most current polygon’s pad is archived, the application will default to the next current polygon and this operator’s acreage summaries will be affected without warning.
  • A reclamation polygon must be within the disturbance polygon boundary. The allowance for the reclamation polygon being no more than 3 meters outside of the disturbance polygon
  • No self-intersecting polygons are allowed
  • A reclamation polygon can be uploaded without the disturbance polygon provided that a disturbance polygon has been uploaded into the application previously. If a reclamation polygon is uploaded without a disturbance polygon, the most recent disturbance polygon will be used in conjunction with the newly uploaded reclamation polygon.
  • If the reclamation polygon being uploaded is smaller than the previous reclamation polygon the user will be asked to verify this is correct before the polygon will be uploaded and saved into the application.
  • When performing a batch upload a list of all polygons with errors will be displayed on the screen. At this point the user will have the option to upload all polygons without errors into the system and fix the remaining polygons before attempting to upload them again OR the user can cancel the process without uploading any polygons. The user can fix the polygons with errors and attempt to upload all polygons again
  • The location name in the shapefile must match the location name in the application.
    • E.g.: If the location in the application is named ANT 2-6, the location name in the shapefile also MUST be named ANT 2-6. Be sure to include the space between the “T” and “2”.
  • For a successful spatial upload, the spatial zip file must contain the following files:
    • SHP
    • PRJ
    • SHX
    • DBF

    • If the location doesn’t yet exist in the application, select Yes to the Add locations if they don’t already exist question found at the top of the screen. This will create the new location and upload the corresponding shapefile(s)
  • All records in a shapefile must have a status of Warning or OK before the Save button will appear below the shapefile display. Once all locations have a status of Warning- or OK, select the Save button
  • After the upload has completed successfully, the user will be brought to the Operator Summary Page. Above the map will be a blue box indicating the upload was successful
