The GIS Converter app is an online tool designed to simplify the conversion of GIS (Geographic Information System) data between various formats. It efficiently manages large datasets and supports various SRSs1 (Spatial Reference Systems), making it a versatile solution for all your data conversion needs.

You can access the GIS Converter app from any browser and device, ensuring maximum accessibility and convenience for all users. All processes run on our servers, so there's no need for any registrations or software installations.


Key Features

  • Format Flexibility: The Converter app seamlessly converts different GIS data formats, including vector and raster layers, enabling the processing of a wide range of data types.
  • Full SRS Support: Our app provides full SRS support, including popular systems such as WGS 84, UTM-N31, Web Mercator, NAD27, NAD83, and Prs92, as well as custom SRS. With a repository of over 10,000 systems to cater to diverse user needs.
  • Continuous Updates: Powered by Aspose.GIS, the converter app commits to providing users with the latest SRS information through regular updates, ensuring you stay current with the GIS landscape.
  • Warning Mechanism: When specific data formats are limited to a single SRS, typically WGS84, the Converter app will proactively notify this limitation through a warning message, allowing users to make decisions about data conversion.
  • Precision Adjustment: Allows adjustment of precision from 0 to 15 digits after the decimal point for XY (2D) and Z (3D) coordinates. In a 3D coordinate system, Z typically represents the vertical dimension, measuring elevation or depth, while M represents a "measurement" and provides additional information relative to a location in space.

Benefits of Data Conversion

Data conversion in GIS offers several advantages:
  • Cost Efficiency: Data conversion is a cost-effective alternative to recreating GIS data from scratch, especially when dealing with large amounts of geographic data.
  • Resource Optimization: Converting data from one format to another helps maximize the utility of available resources, thereby improving accessibility, usability, and compatibility of data.
  • Data Distribution: Data transformation facilitates the sharing and distribution of GIS data to a broader audience, enabling valuable geographic information to be disseminated to stakeholders.

GIS Significance

GIS plays a central role in modern data management and analysis. It enables mapping companies to collect, compile, and analyze both spatial and non-spatial data for specific geographic areas. This approach reveals resource locations, consumer behavior patterns, demographic trends, utility maps, and more. Through GIS services, organizations and individuals can harness the power of geographic data to make informed decisions and gain valuable insights.

The Converter app is a versatile solution for GIS data conversion, supporting a variety of data formats and coordinate reference systems. Its efficiency, transparency, and adaptability to changing SRS requirements make it a valuable asset for GIS professionals and organizations looking to optimize their data management and analysis processes.

Our app is a virtual instrument powered by Aspose.GIS. It processed all files using Aspose.APIs, trusted by numerous Fortune 100 companies across 114 countries. Aspose.APIs are invaluable for developers, offering capabilities for reading, writing, and converting the most popular GIS file formats. Additionally, we provide comprehensive documentation, clear code samples, and access to an all-dev support team.

How to convert GIS files using the GIS Converter app

  • Upload or Drag and drop the file(s) to the designated area. You can upload multiple files if the format allows;
  • Save As: Select the output format from the dropdown list;
  • Optional Settings:
    1. Output Reference System: If needed, select a specific SRS or create a custom one;
    2. Output Precision: Specify the desired level from 0 to 15 for controlling the number of decimal places. Higher numbers (e.g., 15) provide maximum precision, while lower numbers (e.g., 0) provide less detail;
  • Click the Convert button to start the conversion process;
  • Once the conversion is complete, click the Download Now button to retrieve your converted data.

  1. Why do companies need GIS data formats and data conversion?

    Standardizes geospatial data formats, ensuring compatibility across systems and applications. It is also important for data migration, saving time and resources in GIS development projects.
  2. What are the key advantages of converting GIS data formats?

    Converting GIS data facilitates data transfer between different systems, ensuring data compatibility.
  3. What if the GIS file format I need is not in the list of supported formats?

    If the GIS file format you need is not supported, please inform us, and we will evaluate the feasibility of supporting it and potentially add it to our list.
  4. 📁 How to choose the right precision level?

    Select the optimal output precision based on the level of detail and accuracy required for your data. Higher precision (e.g., 15) provides more decimal places for increased precision, while lower precision (e.g., 0) provides less detail. The choice depends on the specific requirements of your project.
  5. 🛡️ Can I convert multiple files at once?

    Yes, you can convert multiple files at once if your file specification allows. Simply upload or drag and drop the file collection, choose the output format, and convert as usual.
  6. 💻 How do I set up my output reference system?

    To set your output reference system, select the Custom option from the Output reference system dropdown list and enter the EPSG code of your custom system.
  7. 🌐 Can I convert GIS files on Linux, Mac OS, or Android?

    Yes, you can use the free converter on any operating system with a web browser, as it is web-based and requires no software installation.
