Choose the proper file format

Application Possibile formats Remarks
AutoCAD (Autodesk) DWG, DXF, DWF Generally, AutoCAD users will prefer DWG, unless they are going to use the file in other packages along with AutoCAD
Petra (geoPlus) DXF Petra users report the best success if they also select Geographic projection with Decimal Degrees for the map units
Canvas (Deneba) CVX, DXF CVX is available for an additional fee, as it requires a lot of processing time and the resultant files are very large.
MapInfo DXF Some MapInfo users have reported that text appears small. We can make the text larger - but we need to know that you are using MapInfo
Don't know / Don't have software DWF The DWF format may be viewed by installing a free viewer onto your computer. You have the ability to pan, zoom, turn layers on and off, and print, but you will not be able to modify the map.
