What format are your files in?

We offer our data in shapefile format. Because you need between 3 and 5 files for a shapefile, we have created a ZIP file for each of our data download files. You will need a ZIP utility, such as WinZip, to unzip the file after you have saved it to your computer.

An evaluation version of WinZip is available on their website at no cost.
