Hi Can anyone help me with how to import or add .AIB files into arcgis 10.  Or convert them into something compatible.  I believe these are old arcinfo mapping files but i cant seem to get arcgis to reconise them.

Thanks in advance

Dave

Hey there Dave,

   This is indeed an ArcInfo file: Specifically an ArcInfo Binary Coverage File.

Doing some research on this, I found this Technical Article: How To: Convert ArcInfo coverage data to a shapefile using ArcInfo Workstation

So newer versions of of Pro and ArcMap wont be able to read ArcInfo files, but with the help of that workflow you may be able to get somewhere with those files.

Keep on keeping on!
