I was just handed a file with ".gc3" as an extension.

What are they and how do/can I convert it into a file format for use in ArcMap?

Regards,
Geoff

Hi

I don't recognize the extension, although it may be a LISP program; best to ask whoever supplied it about its provenance.

It looks like it might be a 3D localization file produced by TOPCON's TopSURV, as it's documented in their manual. Probably your best bet is to try using the tools they provide and see if it can be converted to something useable outside their software. It may also be a text file, but I'm not sure what the values represent -- probably they can help in interpreting what it contains and how it can be applied in a GIS context.

cheers,
Shaun

Thanks guys.

We don't seem to have anything that can pop this puppy open. I'll see if the surveyor can do something with it.
