How to solve " Error: I don't know that shp type" when wanting to upload zipped shapefile

by sihlenhlapo_up » Wed Nov 29, 2023 4:55 pm America/New_York

Hi there, I am facing a problem when I have to upload my study site zipped shapefile on NASA appEEARS. I have the shapefile in shp, dbf, prj and shx. I zipped these and when I try to upload them, I get the error " Error: I don't know that shp type". I checked the shapefile on QGIS to make sure it does appear and everything looks okay. What can I do to resolve this error?
