Shapefile

Shapefiles of plan view and profile view map window images can be created by selecting File> Export> CAD/SHP to open the Save As dialog box. Select the shp file type and indicate the filename. Exported shapefiles contain the entire map window image, including portions of the window outside the current view.

 

EnviroInsite will generate independent files containing polylines, arcs, and points. The file content can be understood by looking at the file name. For example, sfilearcz.shp contains the arc objects and sfileptsz.shp contains the point objects and text strings. The points shapefile contains the text values as attributes. The file containing no particular type contains the polygon objects. Closed polylines, polyfaces, rectangles, and circles are saved to the polygon file. Line segments and open polylines are saved to the arcs file.

 

Shapefiles exported by EnviroInsite contain attributes that assist in loading these files into ArcMap. The attributes depend on the content of the shapefile and are listed in the tables below. Examine the attributes outside of ArcMap by opening the associated dbf files in MicroSoft Excel.
