With Map Suite, you’re not limited to a handful of proprietary or arcane data formats. In fact, it supports a number of popular GIS file formats, from file-based, to image-based and even spatial databases. For a complete list of supported formats visit the Map Suite Data Format Guide. Don’t see a specific format? Map Suite’s flexible API allows you to integrate your own custom data format.
Beginning with Map Suite 8.0 KML became a natively-supported format across all Map Suite Editions. KML is an XML file format for displaying geographic data in a browser such as Google Earth. It is now an open standard overseen by the OGC(Open Geospatial Consortium).
