AutoCAD compatible dwg and dxf files (2007 and prior) and Esri shapefiles can be imported to generate basemap components. Both formats are commonly used in the exchange of geographic data. The shapefile format is native to the Esri geographical information system (GIS) applications. While CAD files commonly contain combinations of graphic primitive types such as points, polygons and lines, each shapefile will contain only one type of graphic primitive.  


Other image file types can be imported. These files must be georeferenced to match the coordinates associated with project data.


A variety of object types can be drawn on images in the view windows. Properties for each drawing object can be specified by the user.
