Importing SVG files into ArcMap

Question asked by dstazic on May 6, 2019

Hi there,

I've been given a couple of svg files that I need to use in ArcGIS Desktop.


After trawling around the web looking for answers I had no luck. I tried a couple of online converters, which I didn't really want to, but they didn't work for me.


It then occurred to me that I should be using Data Interoperability.


According to Supported formats with the Data Interoperability extension—Help | ArcGIS Desktop  I find that svg is only available for writing (export).


I did try to import the svg as a xml but that failed.


Can anybody help with how I can import an svg file into ArcMap?
