    Hello Alex,

    A shapefile is an Esri vector data storage format for storing the location, shape, and attributes of geographic features.

    I have school locator in my website, So i would like to add school locations using shape files.

    As I know there are no Umbraco packages for shapefiles, and I think it's a good idea to create property editor for this type of files.

    Do you want to create datatype and share with community?

    You can store this files as "File" media type in the media library. Can you specify what file extension do you want to use?

    it's not a problem, try to use Umbraco media uploaded, but not Image type - File type instead.
