To export maps data and maps settings please navigate to:

Select the Export file type from the Drop Down in the Top left of the page

Selecting the export type
Selecting the export type

Each File type supports its own unique export options including which data types can be exported into that file format

JSON: You can select the combination of data types required (Categories | Custom Fields | Markers | Polygons | Polylines | Circles | Rectangles | Heatmap Datasets | Point Labels | Image overlays) and which maps these data types should be exported from

CSV: Only one Data Type can be selected per export, select this from the Data Type Drop down (Categories | Custom Fields | Markers | Polygons | Polylines | Circles | Rectangles | Heatmap Datasets | Point Labels | Image overlays). The Map/s the selected datatype should be exported from should also be selected here

KML: A combination of Markers, Polylines and Polygons can be exported to KML. You are also able to Preserve Shape Styles (Currently in beta). A KML export can only be run for one map at a time and should be selected from the Map Dropdown

wpgmza-settings: A combination of Global Settings, Styling settings and API keys can be exported to a wpgmza-settings file

A wpgmza-settings export will not include any map specific data such as markers, categories, shapes or marker fields. Instead, this tool focuses on exporting global configuration options to assist with migrations to new sites.

Once your desired options have been selected, press "Export" to save the export file
