A DXF map is a digital file format used to represent two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) maps, plans, and drawings. DXF stands for Drawing Exchange Format, which was developed by Autodesk, the maker of AutoCAD, one of the most popular computer-aided design (CAD) software used in the industry.
DXF files require CAD software. If you do not have a CAD software license, you can open and view your DXF map using this free Autodesk Free Viewer online.
DWG and DXF are both file formats used to store computer-aided design (CAD) drawings, including maps. The main difference between DWG and DXF maps lies in their level of compatibility and functionality. DWG files are optimized for use with AutoCAD and contain detailed information about the drawing, while DXF files are a more universal format that can be read by a wider range of software but contain less detailed information. Both our DWG and DXF format maps are compatible with all major CAD software including AutoCAD.
Our DXF maps are compatible with most major CAD software including AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT, Freecad, Vectorworks, Solidworks, Revit, 3ds Max, Autodesk Civil3D, CATIA, PRO Landscape, Sketchup and more.
Our DXF maps are regularly updated every 6 weeks by the Ordnance Survey. You can check the official Ordnance Survey website to find out when the latest OS MasterMap® update took place.
