Q What file formats are available to choose from when downloading data?
A The service supports a wide range of file formats for download.  The formats available for any one particular data product will vary depending upon the type of data structure contained within that product.

As a general rule, the following spatial file formats are available:

      • Vector data – ESRI Shapefile, ESRI File GeoDatabase, MapInfo TAB, MapInfo MID/MIF, Autodesk DWG, Autodesk DXF, OGC KML, OGC GML, CSV (attribute data only)
      • Raster data – GeoTIFF, ASCIIgrid (height data only)

The Data Guides resource contains further information on which particular file formats are available for all available data products.
