They are native formats for ArcGIS (ArcEdit, ArcView, etc.) and AutoCAD.

About Dean Howell

Think outside the square and really believe that anything is possible. For many years now I have been a business owner in the recruitment and mapping industries, starting and running my own successful businesses but never really had a lot of time freedom. I recently changed direction and became a Professional Fire Fighter in Adelaide. Being a fire fighter is a great job and gives me a great deal of personal satisfaction but not the financial freedom that I would like to provide my family. What I was looking for was an opportunity to use my entrepreneurial skills that give me the freedom and lifestyle to choose my own destiny and to enjoy the things my wife and children do on a day to day basis. We have a motto in our house and also in my business that is “Imagine, Dream, Believe” which I love and feel very strongly about. Its aim is to remind everyone that enters our home or that works with me, that they have the freedom to imagine, to dream for the things they want and to truly believe that all is possible if they believe in themselves. Join me on this journey so we can he how high the sky really is :)
