Using Lines and Areas Export
Use Lines and Areas Export to export vector data from the document to various geospatial file formats. Click the Lines and Areas Export button on the Geographic Imager panel or go to File > Export > Lines and Areas Export.
Lines and Areas Export button
To export line and area vector data, choose a file format, a path selection option, and specify a filename and folder location.
The following export formats are supported:
- AutoCAD Drawing/Exchange (DWG, DXF)
- Esri ArcInfo Generate (GEN)
- Esri Interchange File (E00)
- Esri Shapefile (SHP)
- GeoJSON (GEOJSON, JSON)
- Geopackage (GPKG)
- Google Earth (KML, KMZ)
- GPS Exchange Format (GPX)
- MapInfo Interchange Format (MIF)
- MapInfo Table (TAB)
Choose the selected path or all paths in the document:
- Current path
- All paths in the document
- Path from document selection (i.e. use the current selection in the document).
Certain file formats have additional configuration parameters which will be shown in the Format settings section. These settings affect how Geographic Imager handles the data during export.
Paths are always exported to a single file (unless paths contain both lines & areas, and format does not support heterogenous layers). Each path feature is a feature of the output file and compound paths are retained.
Donuts are not supported and will be exported as aggregates.
