Frequently asked question

Can a .GRA or map composition be imported into a non-ESRI software application?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The .GRA and map composition are ESRI proprietary file formats that will not import into other non-ESRI software applications.

Convert the .GRA or map composition into another format, such as PostScript or bitmap, for use in other applications. Use the Arc command POSTSCRIPT for PostScript files or ArcPress for ArcInfo Workstation to export to a BMP, PCL, etc.
