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
