DXF to GeoJSON Conversion

The following list contains valuable resources, packed with detailed guides and expert tips for converting DXF drawings to GeoJSON format using our converters. Look into them now to ease your DXF drawings conversion later.


DXF Drawing Exchange File

A universal file format for exchanging DWG drawing data between AutoCAD and other programs. It has the following features:

  • ASCII Format: The DXF format is text-based and uses a standard syntax to store DWG drawing data. It can be easily edited and viewed with any text editor or viewer.
  • Exchange of DWG Drawing: DXF serves as a conduit for exchanging DWG drawing data between AutoCAD and other programs. This is particularly beneficial as the native DWG file format is proprietary and requires a license to use.
  • DXF Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application allow you to import and export DXF files, and convert them into various other file formats. You can use our products to convert 3D meshes into a set of DXF faces organized in colored layers. This allows you to further process and modify your drawing data using your default DWG editor.

JSON GeoJSON Features File

A geospatial data interchange file format that uses JSON syntax. It is designed to store collections of geographic features along with their custom properties. It has the following features:

  • JSON Syntax: The GeoJSON format uses JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), which is a lightweight and human-readable data format. It can store collections of geographic features and their custom properties in a structured and consistent way. It can also be easily parsed and validated by various software applications.
  • Geographic Features: The GeoJSON format can store point, line string, polygon, and multi-geometry representations of geospatial data. These are defined in the WGS84 spatial reference system, which is the standard coordinate system for global positioning. Each feature has a geometry and a set of attributes that describe its properties, such as name, type, area, population, etc.
  • GeoJSON Converter: Automapki Application for AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD allows you to import and export GeoJSON maps directly in your DWG editor. You can combine geospatial data with your CAD designs and visualize them in a map context. Our add-on also supports the automatic conversion of the coordinate systems and the projection of the GeoJSON data onto the georeferenced DWG drawing.
  • Limitation on Appearance: Unlike other map file formats, GeoJSON does not provide a means to define the appearance or style of geographic features. This is an important consideration when planning your geospatial data visualization.
