WMS:WMS Supported File Formats

From XMS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

WMS supports several file formats and all are opened using the File | Open command. Some of the file formats are native to WMS whereas others are formats defined by other programs or agencies (such as ArcView® or AutoCAD or the USGS). A list of native file formats and Non-native file formats can be viewed.

Previous versions of WMS used an Import command for non-native file formats while the Open command was reserved for native file formats. In this version all files are opened using the Open command, using the file extension drop-down list in the Open dialog to specify the type of file being opened. The list of file extensions supported is long and so WMS will try to show the types of files used in a specific module by default, but any file can be opened from any module, even if the file extension is not listed.
