It is possible to import features using Excel as well. These features might have units too. In order to import these units correctly, make sure you put the units in the right format.

  • To select a unit for an entire column, put the unit in square brackets in the column header.
  • To select a different unit for a single value, just put the deviant unit right behind it.


The ‘45m’ and ‘243km’ will be imported just fine. The ‘107kg’ will be rejected.

Note: units will always be converted to the unit you chose for the particular feature in BeeFinity.
