uSHOW is a collection of time-saving tools that process georeferenced data to be viewed on a map.

Setting "uFIND-able" to Yes allows other uGRIDD users with an active uFIND subscription to see the existence of your page when performing a Location of Interest search near your data.

If no invitation code is set, users can directly access the URL.

If an invitation code is set, users will have the option to contact you to request access.

Set "uFIND-able" to No if you want to disable this feature.

If you created the uSHOW page, a unique URL will show at the end of the process and the same URL will be emailed to you. If someone else created the URL, she will have to send it to you.

If you created an invitation code, anyone who accesses the URL will have to enter the code once while logged into a uGRIDD account. After correctly entering the code once, that account can view the uSHOW page freely.

In the event you choose to host your data on uGRIDD, additional throughput may be necessary if the size of your dataset is greater than 1GB.

For example, if the size your dataset is 2GB, you need to purchase 1GB additional throughput in order to upload and process your data.

Throughput options and price can be found at

When you choose “uGRIDD Hosting”, the entire dataset, including the linked data (i.e. photos, PDF files, LiDAR, etc) is accounted as throughput. Throughput is only a measure of how much data is uploaded, there is no restriction on additional users downloading or viewing the data.

Yes, there are two steps you can preview your map and data before you finish.

1. On "Preview" step, you can review your data on the map.  It is recommended that you verify the location of your data points 



2. On step 6: "Review and Finish", you can click the "Review" button to open a page which is exactly as same as your final product, including the map, page title, page description, and the invitation code. Sharing is disabled for this URL. After you click "Finish", the page may be shared.

If you want your final URL to be accessible by anyone, please select "Public"

If you want your final URL be protected by uGRIDD, please select "Private". Then set an "Invitation code" in the input box below.  The Invitation code is like a password of this final URL.



You only have to provide the "Invitation Code" the first time you access this URL. uGRIDD will automatically verify your account for this URL - you will no longer need to input the code.
