The Download map option allows you to download a map, and its connected datasets, as a file. Once downloaded, you can share this .carto file with any CARTO user, who can import the file into their own account.
The .carto file includes the basemap, connected map layers, custom styling, analysis, widgets, legends, attributions, metadata, and custom SQL queries that are all used to render maps in CARTO.
When viewing a map in Builder, select Download map from the map name menu option.
(You can also access the download option by clicking the export icon from any CARTO public profile map).
If a map contains any private datasets, they are not exported as part of the .carto file.
Importing a .carto file is useful if you are sharing maps with team members, exported a public map from someone's public profile page, or if you are migrating maps to another account.
.cartowhen importing, otherwise an error may appear. For example, this guide provides a sample .carto file that is compressed. Click on "Download resources" from this guide to download the zip file to your local machine. Extract the zip file before importing it to your account.
You can drag and drop the .CARTO file to Your maps dashboard, or use the Connect Dataset options to select the file from your computer.
