how to use geojson?

JSLJSL Global Mapper UserPosts: 369Trusted User
I am trying to use the website macrostrat.org to download some polygons using their api, which is something I've never done before, and I got to this point in the process where it called up some polygons:

https://macrostrat.org/api/columns?all&format=geojson

But how do I get from this page to actual downloaded polygons?  All I see on the page is a bunch of text strings that obviously include polygon corner coordinates, but I have no idea how to translate that to an actual shapefile in GM.

Thanks for any help....

    Hello,

    I am not familiar with that web site, but if you can download the data as a GeoJSON file, Global Mapper can import it, and then you can then export it as a shapefile. 

    Cheers,
