You can delete datasets from within the library. If you have uploaded datasets that you no longer need or that you uploaded in error you can delete them from within eSpatial to free up space.

Click on the Library button in the Top Toolbar to open the Library. Select the Datasets tab to access your datasets. Any datasets that you uploaded or added from the eSpatial datastore will be listed here.


  • Click on the Delete icon to delete the dataset.
  • If the dataset is one from the eSpatial Datastore it will still be available to use from within the eSpatial Datastore.
  • if the dataset is currently in use on a map you will get a message as see below.

Delete Dataset

You must first remove the dataset from any maps that it is on. Once this is done you can then return to the Library and delete the dataset. This is to ensure that you do not accidentally delete a dataset and ruin your map.

Any datasets from the eSpatial Datastore that you delete will be added back to the Datastore. If you need them again later simply add them back as before.

Any datasets that you uploaded will be deleted from within eSpatial. If you need them again late you can add them back using the Add Data button.
