DWG File

DWG is a drawing file format used by AutoCAD.  DWG files can also have map features and attribute definitions.

NOTE: GeoUnderground supports importing some DWG files.  For a DWG file to work, it must have the ESRI map attributes setup and/or have a corresponding Projection (.prj) file to define the projection.

To import a DWG file, go to the Folder Actions menu and click on the “File Import" option.  The File Import window is displayed with the Available formats, “Add Files” button, “Import” button (disabled) and “Cancel” buttons.
