Are file conversion on your site really free?
Absolutely! Our service is completely free.
Do I need to download any software to do my conversion?
No, this converter is completely online. The only thing you download is the converted file at the end.
What file formats do you support?
We support a variety of raster, vector, and grid files. You can see a full list of available file formats here.
What is the maximum file size allowed?
There is a 2GB limit on uploaded files. Additionally, once your converted file list reaches 2GB, we will begin deleting them from our server, beginning with the oldest, to stay under that limit.
How many files can I convert at one time?
There is currently not a limit on the number of files you can convert at one time.
Can I change the export parameters (height, width, dpi, reference information) for my converstions?
Absolutely! Click the icon with the red arrow in the Options column to open the Export Options dialog. The content of this dialog changes depending on what type of export file you chose.
How can I get the converted files?
At the end of the conversion, the files will be automatically downloaded. Additionally, you will be able to download all or a subset of the newest 2GB worth of converted files, as long as they were converted within the 2 week time limit. If the files do not automatically download after converting, make sure you have popups enabled in your browser and try to re-download them from the My Files tab.
Where do you store the uploaded files?
All uploaded files are stored on our servers until their conversions are successfully completed, after which they are automatically deleted.
How can I convert my SHP file and keep georeferencing and attributes?
  1. Upload your SHP file by clicking and dragging it into the conversion box or clicking the Browse button and selecting it.
  2. Verify the Import Format is set to Vector - SHP ESRI Shapefile.
  3. Choose the Export Format.
  4. Click the icon with the blue arrow in the Options column to open the Import Options dialog.
  5. Toggle External Reference File for the Coordinate System, then choose the reference file (PRJ, GSR, etc.) and click Open.
  6. Upload any additional external files (DBF, SHX, etc.) by clicking and dragging them into the External Files box or clicking the Browse button and selecting them.
  7. Click OK to close the Import Options dialog.
  8. Click the icon with the red arrow in the Options column.
  9. Set the Coordinate System and other export options for your output file and click OK.
  10. Click the Convert button.
  11. Confirm your options and click Confirm.

This applies for any file you have with attributes, georeferencing, or other information in an additional file.
What happens to the files I upload? Are they safe?
In this day and age, it’s understandable to be concerned about the safety of your files online. Here’s how we protect your files while they’re in our hands:

  • All communication between the server and you (and vice versa) is encrypted.
  • You can only download files after logging in with your verified email address.
  • You can delete files at any time.
  • All uploaded files are automatically deleted after 2 weeks or when your converted file storage reaches 2GB, whichever comes first.
  • You keep the copyright and ownership of the source file and the converted file.
  • Should a problem occur with your file conversion, your file will be used to troubleshoot the issue by Golden Software personnel. Your file’s confidentiality will be maintained.
