Data Conversion

This the process GIS process of geographical data conversion from one format to another. This usualy is because the system has been replaced or has been updated, hence the need to alter and transfer data to the format it can be read and interprated by the system.

Cross transfer from different application can be hectic due to incompatibility information formarts. It is our drive to help you with handling such data conversion and transfer process.

Vector Data file formats in GIS

Line, Polygon, Point, Shapefile, ArcInfo, ArcSDE, DLG, GeoJSON, AutoCAD DXF, KML, TIGER, GML, OSM, SpatialLite, SVG, SOSI, MapInfo TAB

Raster data file format lists in GIS

Graphic Interchange Format (GIF), Portable Network Graphics (PNG), Digital raster graphic(DRG), oint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG), Digital Elevation Model (DEM), ArcInfo Grid, MAP, Compressed ARC Digitized Raster Graphics (CADRG), BSB, Terragen terrain, Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM), Integrated Software for Imagers and Spectrometers (ISIS), High Resolution Elevation (HRE), Extensible N-Dimensional Data Format(NDF), Hierarchical Data Format (HDF) 4, Golden Software Grid (.grd), ENVI Header, File geodatabase, Digital Geographic Information Exchange Standard (DIGEST), Controlled Image Base (CIB), Tagged Image File Formats (TIFF), Enhanced Compressed Wavelet (ECW), Raster Product Format (RPF), Network Common Data Form (netCDF), Multi-resolution Seamless Image Database (MrSID),

GIS Data Conversion

Our GIS program support many types of data conversion, such as: Vector to Vector, Raster to Raster, Vector to Raster and Raster to Vecto. Our data conversion methods ensure:

  • Data is converted into an appropriate format and is transferred correctly
  • Data works in the new destination database
  • Data retains it’s quality and data consistency is maintained at all times across all the systems.

There are many data file formats used in GIS, we handle and help you manage most of these extensions and their file types :

ExtensionFile TypeDescription
Ersi Shapefile.SHP
.SHP is the feature geometry
.SHX is the shape index postion
.DBF is the attribute data
Geographic JavaScript
Object Notation (GeoJSON)
GeoJSON format is mostly for web-based mapping. GeoJSON stores coordinates as text in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) form
Google Keyhole Markup Language (KML/KMZ).KML
Used by Google Maps, KML stands for Keyhole Markup Language. KMZ is the Zipped format of KML.
GPS eXchange Format (GPX).GPXGPS Exchange format is an XML schema that describes waypoints, tracks and routes captured from a GPS receiver
Geography Markup Language (GML).GMLGML allows for the use of geographic coordinates extension of XML (eXtensible Markup Language)
VCT formats are limited to points, lines, polygons, text, and photos, The documetation file format of .VCT is .VDC.
.TAB files are ASCII format that link the associated ID, DAT, MAP and IND files.
.DAT files contain the tabular data associated as a dBase DBF file.
.ID files are index files that link graphical objects to database information.
.MAP files are the map objects that store geographic information.
.IND files are index files for the tabular data.
OpenStreetMap OSM XML.OSMOSM files are the native file for OpenStreetMap
Digital Line Graph (DLG).DLGDigital Line Graph (DLG) files are vector in nature that were generated on traditional paper topographic maps
