NTXShape: NTX to Shapefile Converter
This is only a summary; the full home page, including application binaries, project history, and source code, may now be found at
NTXShape converts files from the CARIS NTX format into the
widely supported ESRI shapefile format. NTX is one of the
standard formats used to distribute digital maps in Atlantic
Canada, and is also the former standard for electronic charts
from the Canadian Hydrographic Service. The shapefile format
was popularized by ArcView GIS. It is now supported by all
ESRI software and by a large number of third-party GIS
applications and data providers.
There is a user / developer forum for NTXShape, hosted on Yahoo! Groups. All are welcome to join. In addition, for those who wish to work with the source code, a development site is under
construction at SourceForge.net.
