Shapefile Export & Attribute Table

Learn More

Export your projects to shapefile for easy submission to your GIS department or governing agency. Automatic division of data into appropriate shapefiles means that you can export any selection of data, or your entire project, in a couple easy steps. The new shapefile export supports GIS, DBX, FieldGenius, and CAD data simultaneously. Use the new Attribute Table Export function to quickly export a selection of points and attributes to a .csv file for review.
