Import Polygon and Point Shapefiles


I am currently using the ShapeFile Map for StatsPlanetPlus. I have created a bunch of maps in QGIS and I would like to import them into StatsPlanet. One layer in the map is a polygon layer, and the other is a point layer. Unfortunately, it is not possible to merge a polygon and point shapefile. I could turn them into a geojson and then merge them, but I don't think StatsPlanetPlus will support that file type. Do you have any advice on how I can solve this problem? Thank you very much.

You are right StatPlanet Plus does not support points. You could perhaps try to convert points to e.g. circular polygons, by buffering the points. I have no experience with this, but there is a discussion of this here: (see "Here's some code written to do buffering"), and also here: https://geonet.esri.com/thread/4331
